LONDON, April 15 (Reuters) - British foreign minister Jeremy Hunt will on Monday seek to reassure Japanese carmaker Toyota that the government is focused on avoiding a no-deal exit from the European Union and ensuring tariff-tree trade between Britain and the EU.
Hunt will meet Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Toyota representatives during a visit to Japan that his office said would give him chance to explain the latest Brexit developments.
"The UK has always been an outward-looking, global power. That cannot change after Brexit. I look forward to our relationship with Japan getting even closer in the years after we leave the EU," Hunt said in a statement before the meetings.
The statement said he would discuss Toyota's recently announced plans to build a new car with Suzuki in Britain and "reassure them that UK Government is focussed on avoiding a no-deal Brexit and on agreeing a deal which that will ensure tariff-free frictionless trade between the EU and the UK".
Hunt will also meet telecommunications firm NTT DoCoMo . (Reporting by William James; Editing by Jan Harvey)
