Thank you to our sponsors and advisory panel members who joined us for the Christmas drinks reception with the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, the Rt. Hon Sajid Javid MP in December.
It was wonderful to see so many of you there expressing a keen interest in UK trade and investment. We were glad to have the opportunity to meet old friends and new contacts.
Our sincere thanks go to the Secretary of State for taking the time to outline the government’s strategy to increase exports and inward investment, deepen relationships with emerging markets, and improve UKTI. Sajid spoke impassionately about the global nature of the marketplace and the international expression of capitalism and we thank him for sharing his insights.
We came away from the function with some interesting ideas for the APPG’s programme this year and for proposed actions by government through UKTI.
