Global leaders discuss how to boost business investment

28 April 2013

Finance leaders and chief executives from around the world will convene in London on 9 May to discuss ways to boost business investment at the Global Investment Conference (GIC).

Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde and German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeubl will be among the 300 business leaders attending, with Mayor of London Boris Johnson and UK Trade and Investment Minister Lord Green joining key players from the financial arena in Britain.

The delegates will be discussing international economic growth, global business investment in the year ahead, areas for collective action, and the opportunities arising for global investors and companies. Energy, infrastructure and professional and financial services will also be on the agenda.

Lord Green said: “The Government is committed to attracting more inward investment and promoting the UK as an attractive inward investment destination.”

“Over the coming years, we aim to attract hundreds of billions of pounds in infrastructure investment, delivering major projects in partnership with companies and investors within the UK and overseas.”

The GIC will build upon a major investment conference held last year as part of a series of 17 events at the British Business Embassy during the Olympic Games. These promoted the UK as the ideal place to do business, helping British firms to export and compete around the world.
