Prime Minister David Cameron said: “These new awards recognise just some of the many thousands of Asian professionals who are excelling in Britain today. Whether it’s in the court room, the newsroom or the classroom, Asian men and women are not only providing expert services, skills and capabilities; they are delivering for Britain too.”
Nick Clegg MP, Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the Liberal Democrats said, “For many years, Britain’s professional sectors have seemed closed off to people from certain backgrounds. Finally, that is changing. It’s talented people like you that are helping to make that happen.”
Ed Miliband MP, Leader of the Labour Party said, “An evening where the focus is solely on celebrating the success of British Asian is an example to the younger generation of Asian men and women in this country, who sometimes lack role models. The younger generation will look at the success of the nominees and winners, and I hope that they will be able to seek inspiration.”
Boris Johnson, Mayor of London said, “I am delighted that London is hosting the inaugural Asian Professional Awards. For centuries, our vibrant and diverse Asian community has been a vital part of what makes our city so great, contributing to its economic prosperity across a wide variety of sectors and helping to make it the success that it is today.”
Winners will be announced on the 27th November at The Asian Professional Awards 2014 ceremony, taking place at the prestigious Emirates Stadium, London.
