The UK Foreign Secretary is hosting the Addressing Africa conference with the hope of re-shaping the North-South trade relationship. MI-6 has intercepted a conversation between the French and the Americans that indicates their earlier support for the British initiative is now waning. MI-5 has the meeting bugged and blanketed with CCTV. A conversation with the US Secretary of State and the Japanese Foreign Minister eventually gives them the edge they need to beat them at their game. Their work isn't over however.
