The new policy is supposed to reach out to the growing economies - India, Brazil among them. But everyone does that and previous British governments have done it.
Russia is also supposed to become a new friend. Hopefully, Russia too now wants to be more friendly to the West. It will be interesting to see if Britain criticises Russia's human rights record. Or will the new prosperity imperative prevail over such concerns? It seems to have done so already over the unresolved Litivinenko affair, which has been put to one side.
Great uncertainty prevails as to how all this will feed into the British strategic defence review now under way.
Does it represent a distancing of British policy from interventionism? Will the UK still seek to play a world policeman role and how will its diminished prosperity pay for it if it does?
