LONDON. January 17. KAZINFORM City Week is the global forum for senior members of the international financial services community. Attendance is by invitation only. City Week enjoys the support of the UK Government, in the form of UK Trade & Investment, as well as that of a large number of UK and international financial services trade associations.

The Board of Patrons includes leading figures from the industry and the political world, including Mark Hoban MP, Financial Secretary to the Treasury and Andrew Tyrie MP, Chairman of the influential House of Commons Treasury Select Committee.

International speakers from Brazil, Canada, China, the European Union, India, Kazakhstan, Morocco, Russia, Singapore, Switzerland, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates will also take part, the press service of the Kazakh Embassy in the UK said.

Building on the success of last year's inaugural event, which attracted more than 650 delegates from 40 countries, City Week is now firmly established as the premier international event of its kind in the UK. City Week 2012 will bring together senior representatives from both the providers and users of international financial services worldwide in order to discuss the key challenges facing the industry globally. It consists of two days of cutting edge conferences, seminars and exclusive social gatherings, with an optional third day of one on one networking meetings.

A special feature of City Week 2012 is the opportunity to network with UK Government ministers and members of Parliament by attending the City Week drinks receptions at which they will be present. Delegates may also be invited to attend one of the VIP dinners that are being planned with UK politicians. These various events will provide an ideal opportunity for you to discuss both the business environment and the development of your business interests in the UK. In addition, support is available from City Week for you to arrange meetings with leading financial institutions during your stay in London. As a delegate, you will also be able to network with your distinguished peer group of fellow delegates from around the world, and organise face to face meetings with them. This will be facilitated by sophisticated networking technology.
