Sadiq Khan heads to Brussels with message that London is still open
Almost 70 per cent of Londoners say they are concerned about the impact of skilled workers leaving the capital after Brexit, and almost half of Londoners are worried about the impact of EU nationals leaving London when the UK leaves the European Union.
The polling data was released by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, last week (26 October) as he headed to Brussels for meetings with senior EU politicians including the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier.
The Mayor’s visit is the first of four important trade missions to major EU cities as he bids to protect the capital’s economy from the effects of Brexit and reiterates his message that ‘London Is Open’ to visitors, investment, talent and ideas. Later this year Sadiq will also take his message to Berlin, Paris and Dublin where he will meet with leading European business leaders and senior politicians.
As part of the #LondonIsOpen message, the Mayor has today released a new film that celebrates London’s diversity. It follows in the footsteps of the hugely successful first London is Open film, which promoted the capital’s welcoming ethos to the world. The film is available athttps://youtu.be/M_dmRrVq3y8
