It gives me great pleasure to convey my warmest congratulations to all the nominees and winners of this year’s Black British Business Awards, which celebrate and recognise the fantastic contribution of Black business people across the United Kingdom.
It is vital we recognise and reward the often unsung contributions of exceptional black business professionals, entrepreneurs and role models. Thank you to Melanie Eusebe MBE and Sophie Chandauka MBE for creating these awards which span so many sectors and walks of life.
The Government remains committed to creating socially stronger, more confident and integrated communities, and I support the work that the Black British Business Awards does in helping to create such societies.
Congratulations to all the winners and nominees on the night. You should be incredibly proud of your achievements and I hope you and all those attending have a wonderful celebration.
All the nominees should be incredibly proud of their achievements and I wish them all the best with their future endeavours.
