An evening with Bim Afolami, MP for Hitchin and Harpenden, and the Rt Hon Baroness Morgan of Cotes on Friday, 3 April 2020

biz4Biz Politico events will present topical views delivered by Government Ministers at a series of evening dinner events which will be organised by biz4Biz and hosted by Bim Afolami MP.

These events provide members and guests the opportunity to meet with the people who decide on the country’s direction of travel and provide an insight into policy making decisions and outcomes. Keeping in touch with people and businesses is key to Ministers and MPs and these events provide them a real opportunity to fully understand what is happening in the county and how best to direct the country’s future.
