Isle of Man to host event at Mansion House 12 September 2008

The Isle of Man’s profile in the City of London is set for a major boost with the first dinner to be hosted by the Manx Government at the prestigious Mansion House.

The event is part of the Government’s ongoing strategy to support the Island’s economy by developing key international relationships. It will heighten awareness in the heart of the City of the Isle of Man and its business opportunities.

The dinner, to be attended by more than 200 guests including international business leaders and diplomats, takes place on Friday September 19.

The occasion will be hosted by Chief Minister Tony Brown MHK, supported by representatives of the Island’s government and private sector, in the presence of the Lord Mayor of the City of London.

The Mansion House is the official residence of the Lord Mayor. Formal relations between the Isle of Man and the City have been strengthened under the current Mayor, Alderman David Lewis, who visited the Island in November last year and described it as ‘a core asset’ for the City. He pointed out that assets worth billions of pounds held by Isle of Man companies were invested in and through the City.

The Chief Minister explained:

‘The relationship between the Isle of Man and the City of London is mutually beneficial and holds much potential for the future. This dinner is an unprecedented opportunity to promote the Island to a highly influential audience and to say thank you to the current Mayor for all his support.’

He added:

‘It is vitally important that we carry on building the Island’s international relationships and reputation, so that the economy and prosperity of our community can continue to flourish.’
