MP welcomes young Japanese business visitors to Clwyd South

Susan Elan Jones MP welcomed a group of young Japanese business people to her Clwyd South constituency as they stopped to visit Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

The group were on a familiarisation trip to Britain to visit different destinations and meet with around 300 businesses at a flagship business event.

The Clwyd South Labour MP, who worked in Japan after leaving university, said: “I once worked in Japan so I was particularly delighted to meet with a group of young business visitors from that country.

“I am so pleased that the group got to see our wonderful World Heritage Site, Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

“The visitors asked many different questions, but one that seemed to be of great interest was our membership of the EU. I suppose that isn’t surprising when you think of how many jobs and how much business investment in our country is dependent on our being in the EU.” 

Timothy Jenkins, Senior Tourism Affairs Executive of Visit Britain, who organised the visit said: “I am delighted that Susan Elan Jones MP was able to meet with the group of Japanese travel traders who came to North Wales. The group were very impressed and grateful that Susan welcomed them to Wales in Japanese!”
