Nadhim Zahawi, Chancellor of the Exchequer and a local MP, attended and spoke at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Birmingham.
“I spoke to business leaders about green investment opportunities and how government and business can work with one another in the transition to net zero. Some of those businesses are already investing in the West Midlands and some are considering it – many can see the potential of our region.
“The Commonwealth Games has already brought £800million worth of investment and it has unlocked billions more. There have also been 40,000 jobs as a result of Birmingham being the host city and long-term for Birmingham and the region, there has been investment in technology and infrastructure. This is levelling-up in action.”
