U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May headed to the Group of 20 summit in Argentina with a message for world leaders: Her Brexit deal is good for the global economy.

But it’s a variant on her sales pitch since sealing a deal with the EU at the weekend on the terms of Britain’s departure and a political framework for its future relationship.
