British Prime Minister, Theresa May is set to visit Africa on a trade mission aimed at boosting the U.K.’s post-Brexit fortunes.

May would be accompanied by a business delegation that includes the UK trade minister and minister for Africa, on the trip, which aims to deepen and strengthen Britain’s global partnerships as it prepares to leave the European Union next year.

She described the visits as ”a unique opportunity at a unique time has a very clear purpose. As we prepare to leave the European Union, now is the time for the UK to deepen and strengthen its global partnerships,” May said.

May would visit Cape Town in South Africa on Tuesday, where she will give a speech on trade and how British private sector investment can be brought into Africa.

She would also visit Nigeria and Kenya later in the week, making her the first UK prime minister to visit Kenya in more than three decades and the first to visit Sub-Saharan Africa since 2013.
