  • How do businesses become involved with L&P and the GLA in relation to overseas visits and trade delegates?
  • How do businesses find out about the opportunities to receive sponsorship and to participate in trade missions?
  • What kind of application processes do organisations go through to join the Mayor’s International Business Programme?
  • What (if any) relationships do organisations need to have with the Mayor of London or GLA officers at the time of securing a place on the Mayor’s International Business Programme?

Tomorrow, the GLA Oversight Committee will discuss with L&P’s beneficiaries how they became involved with L&P/GLA and what impact their involvement has had on their business and any issues relating to access to GLA sponsorship and Mayoral trade missions.
