MP meets with UKTI CEO to highlight the pioneering work to bring investment to Shropshire

On Monday the 27th of January Daniel Kawczynski met with, Crispin Simon acting chief executive of UKTI and Nahid Majid who heads up UKTI Regeneration Investment Organisation (RIO). During a productive meeting they discussed the work that has been done to make sure that development opportunities in Shropshire are being properly advertised to potential investors.

The Regeneration Organisation offers UK projects an international platform to pitch their regeneration opportunities and provides international investors with a gateway into large scale regeneration projects throughout the UK.

The meeting came after Nick Baird who was Chief executive of UKTI stepped down to work for Centrica. Nick Baird visited Shrewsbury with Daniel in November 2013 to look at the local economy and the possible investment opportunities.

Daniel said:

“We have led pioneering work by bringing UKTI and Shropshire Council together in order to make sure, that the investment opportunities available in the county are properly advertised to foreign investors”
