He’ll also be updated by NZ’s trade minister Todd McClay who met with officials from both the UK and the EU at the G20 trade ministers meeting in Shanghai over the weekend.

Australia did not have any minister at the G20 meeting. However, a senior government official and the ambassador to China Jan Adams attended.

Mr Turnbull has asked Treasury and financial regulators for a report on possible responses to the Brexit.

Mr Key and Mr Turnbull will also separately meet with Joe Biden during a brief visit to Australia and NZ by the US vice-president next week.
