13 March 2016, Nirapad News: Britain’s business leaders marked the 100-day countdown to the International Festival for Business 2016 (IFB2016) at an exclusive showcase hosted by HSBC on Friday.
Backed by HM Government, IFB2016 will open on June 13 and run for three weeks. This year’s event will focus on three key sectors: manufacturing, energy and environment, creative and digital. It expects to bring together thousands of global businesses, providing a platform for companies to connect and conduct international commerce, reports Xinhua.
Catherine Raines, CEO of UK Trade and Investment, said: “IFB2016 is a unique opportunity for UK businesses and attending is the natural next step for companies inspired to trade overseas.”
As starting the 100 day countdown to IFB2016, she has urged British companies and overseas buyers and investors to register.
Max Steinberg CBE, Chair of IFB2016, said the event is about showcasing what British business makes and does. “Governments and businesses from around the globe view our economy as one to invest in — it is solid, growing and sustainable.”
Ian McCarthy, Director of IFB2016, said the purpose of the festival is to help businesses increase their international sales and to establish Britain’s position as the home of international trade.
IFB2016 will be the second edition of the festival, after a first one was held in 2014.-Asfar
