Olympic and Paralympic Success to Boost Business Growth
Trade Minister Lord Green and Olympic Ambassador Sebastian Coe vowed today to build on the success of the Olympics and Paralympic Games by working with industry to promote British skills around the world.
An Olympics Legacy programme of trade missions and companies in the building construction sector will build on the successful completion of the Olympic venue which is set to bring £13 billion to the UK in the coming months and years.
Olympics Legacy Ambassador to the Prime Minister, Sebastian Coe, said that the Olympic legacy which London 2012 left is ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ opportunity to showcase British business excellence to the world.
Coe, who is also a double Olympic Champion and 12-time world record holder in athletics, said: “The extraordinary success of the London 2012 Games has shown the best of Britain to the world and now our focus turns to securing a lasting legacy. We have already witnessed the incredible regeneration of east London, with world class facilities and a new urban park created.
“We now need to ensure that organisations up and down the country use the positive impact generated by the Games to reach out to new markets and grow their businesses.
“The British Business Embassy at Lancaster House has brought together business leaders from the UK and all over the world in a showcase of Britain’s industrial strengths and successes.”
Trade and Investment Minister, Lord Green, said that the Games have provided excellent chance to enhance Brittan’s business links with the rest of the world that will bring significant investment to the economy.
Mr Green said: “The British Business Embassy has hosted 4,000 business people from large and small firms alike. The connections they have made will deliver real economic dividends.
“We are now working hard, alongside firms around the country to follow up the contacts, networks, announcements and momentum created by the Games.”
