Rt Hon David Cameron MP, Prime Minister and Leader of the Conservatives
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.”
Rt Hon 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.”
Rt Hon 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.
