MIPIM_outsideI really do wonder at the lack of vision shown by some critics of our Council’s Inward Investment strategy.   With limited funds the team are trying to sell Cardiff as a location for inward investment.

One of the world’s biggest exhibitions, MIPIM, held in Cannes, South of France every year is attended by some very serious potential inward investors to Cardiff.   Often contacts made at such gatherings, and discussions on projects, take years to come into fruition. I have attended this event on behalf of clients and feel that the Council’s team, and the commercial partners that accompanied them, should be applauded for going to this event to research city competitors actively, meet prospective investors and generally raise the profile of Cardiff as a serious player in international business destinations.

Please stop criticising what is an essential part of the city’s inward investment strategy.
