The British Foreign Policy Group is proud to be partnering with Manchester City Council, Northern Powerhouse Partnership and Manchester Metropolitan University to host ‘Manchester’s International Ambitions in a Time of Change‘.


This event will highlight Manchester and the region’s growing international reach and ambitions and place these within the wider shifts in the UK’s international position. Senior figures across Manchester’s local government, business, higher education and cultural sectors, as well as the Foreign & Commonwealth Office will engage with a wider audience of stakeholders from across the city and region on key issues regarding Manchester’s growing global links and profile, and how these relate to regional, as well as wider national initiatives to protect and promote the UK’s prosperity, security and influence.

The event will also see the launch of a new report – Manchester: A Soft Power Entrepreneur’, which examines how and why the city has been uniquely successful in promoting a strong national and international identity and tying that to its ambitions to promote its trade, cultural engagement and wider soft power.
