Chief Minister and Treasury Minister attend Mansion House event 20 June 2008

CHIEF Minister Tony Brown MHK and Treasury Minister Allan Bell MHK were present at the Mansion House in London this week to hear keynote speeches on the British economy from Governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King and Chancellor of the Exchequer Alastair Darling.

Mr Brown and Mr Bell represented the Isle of Man at the annual Bankers Dinner hosted by the Lord Mayor of the City of London on Wednesday evening (June 18, 2008). They mixed with senior figures from the City, UK business and politics, and had a brief conversation with Chancellor Darling.

The attendance of the Chief Minister and Treasury Minister at the prestigious event was one of the opportunities to enhance the Isle of Man’s profile in the City that have arisen following the Lord Mayor’s visit to the Island in November last year. The Lord Mayor, Alderman David Lewis, delivered the inaugural Chief Minister’s International Lecture at the Mount Murray Hotel and described the Island as ‘a core asset’ for the City.

In February this year the Chief Minister and Trade and Industry Minister David Cretney MHK attended the Trade and Industry dinner at the Mansion House.

Guests at this week’s Bankers Dinner included the chairmen and chief executives of international banks, accountancy and law firms, and FTSE 100 companies.
