8 events, 12 opportunities, 3 board members & 4 partnership announcements from UKABC – Aug 2017

Dear Readers,

We’re wishing a happy Independence Day to our Pakistani and Indian friends.

Every Independence Day we at UKABC reflect on what it means to be ‘independent’ and the journey a country and its people go on to reach this point. What makes a country progress or hinders its progress, whether a newly independent country or the oldest on earth, is based on the following:

1. Media
2. Judiciary
3. Investigating Agency
4. Bureaucracy
5. Economy

Keeping the above in mind, we’re pleased to announce that UK Asian Business Council will launch Asia and Africa Times in January 2018. It’s an uphill task that we feel is incredibly important in order to ensure there is a free and fair platform connecting all of the regions where our partner businesses and organisations reside.
