Promoting the City in the UK

​A large part of the UK's financial and professional services industry is located outside of London, supporting growth and employment throughout the country.

The Lord Mayor's role is to act as an overseas ambassador for UK-wide financial and professional services, representing the interests of businesses in this sector, regardless of whether or not they are geographically located in the Square Mile.

The Lord Mayor undertakes a programme of visits to regional centres in order to gain a full understanding of the needs and concerns of the UK-wide industry, to best represent these interests. These visits also help to build excellent working relationships between London and regional centres.
