As the ambassador for the UK’s financial services sector I’m always looking to strengthen the world’s economic and commercial ties. This is why you’ll find me in Mauritius next week.
It’s the Lord Mayor’s job to represent the City of London – the UK’s financial district – for a term of one year. With time so limited, I have to choose the countries I visit extremely carefully, picking out the ones with the best combination of potential and ambition. This year I am honoured to be the first Lord Mayor to visit Mauritius.
