Overseas business visits
The Lord Mayor of the City of London serves as an international ambassador for the UK’s fi nancial and professional services industry, representing both London, the world’s leading fi nancial centre, as well as the UK’s regional hubs in priority growth markets overseas. The Lord Mayor often makes his overseas visits at the head of City business delegations, opening the door to markets overseas for British businesses looking to expand internationally. As a representative of one of the UK’s leading industries the Lord Mayor meets with Central Bank Governors, Finance Ministers, trade body representatives, and business leaders to discuss how London’s unmatched offer can help businesses and governments achieve their goals for growth and investment.
The Lord Mayor’s Overseas Engagement Programme is organised in conjunction with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, London and Partners, and the Department for International Trade.
If you are a member of a City firm and interested in joining an overseas business delegation you can register your interest by email to the Lord Mayor Visits team. Make sure to include the reasons you would like to take part in the visit and how the Lord Mayor can help you achieve your aims and objectives.
The Lord Mayor also undertakes visits to regional centres in the UK as part of a programme in support of the financial services industry.
