* UK FIRMS: British firms must do more to take advantage of new export routes opened up by Brexit, trade minister Liz Truss will say on Tuesday, calling for a shift from "defence to offence in trade" to help drive economic growth.

* GOLD: Gold prices inched lower on Tuesday, as investors braced for the U.S. inflation data that could offer cues on the Federal Reserve's timeline to start tapering stimulus measures meant to aid economic recovery from the pandemic.
