Rt Hon Justine Greening Conservative MP for Putney, Secretary of State for International Development
“May I commend the work of the Centre for Kurdish Progress in recognising the achievements of Kurds in the United Kingdom. As your 2015 awards ceremony showed, Kurds have significantly contributed to both British and Kurdish communities - as successful entrepreneurs, students, artists and more. I am pleased to see that my colleague, Nadhim Zahawi MP is to co-host the awards ceremony.
I am sad to say that I will be unable to attend this year's event due to pre-existing diary commitments. However, I wish you the very best with the evening and I hope it provides again to be a success.”
