Question by Stephen Knight

Can you confirm the foreign destinations you plan to visit over the coming months following press reports of "a series of prime ministerial-style foreign trips” to boost foreign direct investment in London?

Answer by Boris Johnson

Initially, I plan to visit India towards the end of 2012 and then in future years I am considering visits to the Middle East, Brazil and China, and quite possibly other locations. None of these are currently confirmed. I also plan to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos and possibly MIPIM in Cannes in future years.

The purpose of all of my visits will be to promote London and the opportunities available to investors.
