Commercial Diplomacy Programme
House of Lords
Viscount Waverley (Crossbench)
To ask Her Majesty's Government whether each of the individual countries in Central Asia are considered as of priority interest in their commercial diplomacy programme; and, if so, in what regard.
Lord Howell of Guildford (Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office; Conservative)
There is no priority list for commercial diplomacy as the whole of the overseas network is expected to play its part fully, but we will work tirelessly to exploit the business opportunities that exist in the Central Asian region.
