The first Northern Asian Powerlist will be launched on Friday, celebrating the contribution of Asian influence and impact across the North of England.

Cobra Beer founder and CBI President Lord Karan Bilimoria of Chelsea said: “We have so much talent across all of our communities. This list not only highlights the achievements of a diverse UK Plc and the North in particular but also acts as an inspiration for generations to come.

“For the UK to prosper, it needs to increase its productivity across all regions, and it needs to harness every bit of talent available across the North and beyond.”

Lord Bilimoria is among the speakers at the event on October 2, alongside former Northern Powerhouse Minister Jake Berry, Leeds City Region LEP chair Roger Marsh, and Powerlist project director Sharon Jandu.

The Asian community is making a powerful contribution to all walks of life in every town and city, whether business, cultural, academic or civic.

Join in the celebrations as we hear from the Northern Asian Powerlist winners, judges and supporters.
