The ground breaking ceremony for what aims to be London’s third financial and business district at the Royal Albert Dock will be held on Wednesday 28 June – a significant milestone in the development of the ambitious new project.

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, will be the keynote speaker at an event to mark the occasion.

The development is led by China-based property group ABP, which aims to create an ‘Asian Business District’: a headquarters-to-be for Chinese and other Asian companies, enabling them to reach new markets across Europe.

The ceremony will be followed by a conference produced by Asia House, titled: ‘Embracing Business Opportunities through China’s Belt & Road Initiative’. ABP and Asia House invite you to attend the conference. Please RSVP to confirm your attendance by Wednesday, 21 June 2017, by registering here.
