The Mayor of Liverpool will travel to the Middle East in a bid to create jobs for the city.

Mayor Joe Anderson will speak at the World Chambers of Commerce Congress in Doha. He will also promote the International Festival for Business 2014 which is to be held in Liverpool.

“My message is quite simple: Liverpool is open for business. That is a message I am taking to Abu Dhabit and Doha. It is a message I will take anywhere where I believe we can increase investment in the city.”

“The Conference in Doha creates a perfect platform for our city. We want people to know that Liverpool is a city that is looking for opportunities, has a hunger for growth and a determination to succeed” said Mayor Anderson.

“This visit is all about creating business. And if that means travelling thousands of miles to create business for Liverpool, then that is what I will do.”
