The Lord Mayor of Londonís Square Mile, Jeffrey Mountevans, is leading a large business delegation to the United Arab Emirates

The Lord Mayor of Londonís Square Mile, Jeffrey Mountevans, is leading a large business delegation to the United Arab Emirates (22 - 26 January) as part of his commitment to strengthen relationships in the region and ensure that the UK remains the business partner of choice for the UAE.

The Lord Mayor, acting as ambassador for the UKís financial and professional services, will be meeting with senior members of the government, investment authorities, regulators and business leaders. Speaking ahead of his trip, Lord Mayor Mountevans said:

My visit shows how vitally important the trade and wider bilateral relationship is between the UK and the UAE. As the whole Gulf region looks to diversify its respective economies, I want to show how the City of London and its expertise in financial and professional services can support the region with its ambitious plans, working closely with UK Trade & Investment and the British Embassies. We have so much to offer ranging from innovative financing models to our expertise in the insurance and legal market, education, qualifications and Islamic Finance.

This visit will show how the UK wants to continue to be the UAEís natural partner of choice in its continued economic growth. For example, UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) is actively seeking UAE businesses who wish to source British services including in the FinTech and Financial and Professional Services sectors. I encourage companies in the UAE to contact UKTI at the British Embassy to access their wide network of British suppliers.

I look forward to finding ways we can work together to build a more prosperous future.

The Lord Mayor will also visit Saudi Arabia and Kuwait during his time in the Gulf.
