The guest of honour at the Japan Society and the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the UK’s second joint lunch of 2018, will be Minister for Investment at the Department for International Trade, Mr Graham Stuart MP.


We are delighted to welcome Mr Graham Stuart, appointed in January 2018 to the position of Minister for Investment at the Department for International Trade, to share his views on the investment environment for Japanese companies in the UK. Mr Stuart’s speech is extremely timely against the backdrop of Brexit, and in light of the recently concluded EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) at end-December 2017.


Mr Graham Stuart was elected Conservative MP for Beverley and Holderness in 2005 and more recently, appointed Minister for Investment at the Department for International Trade. Graham started his publishing business while still at Cambridge University. He was later elected to Cambridge City Council, where he eventually led the Conservative Group. Graham’s Parliamentary career has seen him serve as Chair of the Education Select Committee (2010-15) and as a Government Whip with responsibility for the Department of Health, and later for HM Treasury and the Ministry of Defence. In his role as Minister for Investment at the Department for International Trade Graham focuses on encouraging foreign investment into the UK economy and promoting overseas investment opportunities to British companies.


Mr Graham Stuart will speak following a two-course lunch, after which there will be time for questions until 2.30pm.
