Answer for 9th World Islamic Economic Forum 2013

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My office and my promotional organisation London & Partners have worked with the World Islamic Economic Forum to bring its 9th conference to London. We will continue to work with them and colleagues across Government, to assist with preparations for the event to ensure it is a resounding success.

I am delighted that London will be the first city outside an Islamic country to host the World Islamic Economic Forum and I look forward to speaking at the event.
