Is Britain still a major economic power?
David Cameron says that Britain is still a "great economic power" despite having to make major spending cuts in order to reduce the UK's budget deficit. Is Britain on the decline in its world role?
Mr Cameron said his foreign policy must become more commercially driven if Britain is to carry weight on the international stage.
Delivering his first set-piece Guildhall speech on foreign policy, the prime minister added that Britain would need to link its economy to the fastest growing parts of the world including emerging markets such as India, South Africa, Brazil and Russia.
Is a more commercial foreign policy the right approach? What type of relationship should Britain have with emerging markets? How do you view Britain's role on a world stage?
