IGB

Chairman's message

“Great Britain is opening its doors to the world and going global. We want to be at the forefront of building its trade, investment and business bridges with businesses across the globe.” Dr Mohammad Hotak

Invest IN GREAT BRITAIN: THE LAND OF HOPE, GLORY AND GREAT OPPORTUNITIES. 

At Invest In Great Britain (IGB), we are committed to facilitating international trade, investment and business deals between Great Britain and the rest of the world.

While government agencies focus on promotional activities, we are on a mission to close deals and make business happen. 

Our top priority is to help foreign companies to set up base in Great Britain, attract foreign direct investment into British industries and help international buyers import British products; creating jobs, businesses and a strong economy.

We believe that IGB is one of the most significant private sector led initiatives in making Britain a truly global country in a post-Brexit era. 

Our staff, teams and partners work around the clock across four continents to make deals happen.

We are working with government agencies, private sector leaders and nonprofit sector stakeholders to bring  sustainable, socially responsible and profitable opportunities to Great Britain, delivering value for people and businesses alike. 

Contact us today to see how we can help you become part of Global Britain’s success story.
