London is open for business

The new Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has launched a campaign to show the world that London is open for business.

#LondonIsOpen is a new campaign launched by Khan to show that London is united and open for business to the world following the EU referendum.

In a statement on the Mayor’s website, Khan said: “London is the best city in the world. We are entrepreneurial, international and outward looking.

“London is known as a city full of creativity, a place where anything is possible. The key ingredient of our city’s success has been the flow of brilliant ideas and talent from across the globe. 

“Our city is comfortable in its diversity, proud of its history and optimistic about its future. London is open.

“We don’t simply tolerate each other’s differences, we celebrate them. Many people from all over the globe live and work here, contributing to every aspect of life in our city.

“We now need to make sure that people across London, and the globe, hear that #LondonIsOpen. I urge everyone to get involved with this simple but powerful campaign to send a positive message to the world.”

Khan is urging all Londoners, organisations and businesses to show their support for the #LondonIsOpen campaign via social media and other creative means.
