Cllr Alan Rudge and Dr Afnan Al Shuailby

After a successful visit to Birmingham by Dr Afnan Al-Shuaiby, Secretary General of the Arab British Chamber of Commerce, earlier this month the city's Lord Mayor is looking to invite the London-based ambassadors from all 22 Arab states on a fact-finding mission to Birmingham later this year.

 On her visit, Dr Afnan Al-Shuaiby, had a tour of Birmingham, including the Jewellery Quarter and University of Birmingham. She also met a number of officers and members from the city council, including Cllr Alan Rudge, Cabinet Member for Human Resources and Equalities, and Debra Davis, Director of Public Affairs & Communications.

Debra Davis said: “This visit recognised the exciting business, governmental, academic and cultural opportunities between Birmingham and Arab countries generally.”
