Alun Cairns welcomes launch of International Festival of Business

Secretary of State for Wales, Alun Cairns, has praised the International Festival of Business as "a prime shop window for Welsh companies"

Secretary of State for Wales, Alun Cairns, said:

The International Festival of Business (IFB) is a prime shop window for Welsh companies and a global networking opportunity with potential clients.

The festival is being hosted in Liverpool, a city with which North Wales has historic links. It also forms part of the Northern Powerhouse, that dynamic trading arc that now spans from North Wales to Newcastle, linking the big cities of the north and their distinct economies.

I look forward to visit this exciting event next week and encourage businesses in North Wales to do the same.
