Thursday said the UK will continue to be an advocate of free trade even after moving out of the European Union but lamented that all the rhetoric by the community here at the WEF is not matched by necessary actions. Delivering a special address at the (WEF) annual meeting, May said global growth continues to improve since she came here last year and that is a reason for optimism. However, there is a need to act decisively to help people benefit from global growth and help them secure the jobs of tomorrow, she said.
