Two of the UK’s most important business communities are set to meet next week to explore various avenues at strengthening the economic links between them.

Members from pro:manchester, an organisation representing the financial and professional services sector in the city, are to hold talks with the new Mayor of the City of London Michael Bear to discuss the pivotal role Manchester has in supporting UK business and its offerings overseas.

The City of London is home to some of the world’s biggest and most powerful financial institutions and is crucial to the future direction of the British economy. John Ashcroft, chief executive at pro:manchester, believes then that intensifying ties between the two can only bring benefits to businesses in the North West.

“Our business leaders compete on an international scale and our reputation will continue to attract interest and investment, reinforcing our position as a leading centre for financial and professional services outside of London.”

Organisations including Lloyds, The Co-Operative Group, Thomas Cook and Investec already have a business presence in either Manchester or the City of London – why not place your business right amongst the action too?
