The APPG will bring together parliamentarians and London business to promote awareness of the vital role London plays as the UK’s global city and the policies needed to support this position. It will encourage investment in London’s continued success for the benefit of Global Britain’s reputation and competitiveness.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
