As reported today in the Western Mail and South Wales Echo by Sion Barry, it is great to see the city and region being presented to the world in the heart of London.

Exhibiting at the UK equivalent of the famous MIPIM property exhibition in Cannes in France and showcasing the fabulous new model of the city, it is pleasing to read that several enquiries have already been received from possible inward investors.  For too long we have allowed other city regions in the UK to capture the limelight and market opportunities for inward investment to those regions.

Sharing the story of Cardiff and the wonderful opportunities which there are for companies seeking a move or expansion in the UK can only be a positive step. Nigel Roberts, Chairman of the Cardiff Business Council and Ken Poole, Head of Economic Development, are to be congratulated on this initiative which I know is part of a new strategy to sell our city to the world.

I look forward to seeing other initiatives in the future. Well done to the Cardiff Team!!

We should applaud the vision and action of Ken Poole, Head of Economic Development at Cardiff Council and the Cardiff Business Council of selling Cardiff to key international investors at the MIPIM Property Conference in Cannes this week.LivingCardiff

Unless we display to the world what makes Cardiff and its region so special, we have limited chance of growing our fragile economy. Many other cities are represented at Cannes and contacts made will be crucial in the continuing draw to attract new inward investment to the area.

I look forward to hearing about this week’s conference in detail in due course, which I am very confident will have been a success. Well done Ken and your team!
