This is an invaluable opportunity to celebrate the success of companies from Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg and to recognise their contribution to creating jobs and opportunities in the Benelux and for driving prosperity both in the region and internationally. Britain is committed to remaining open to companies looking to invest in and trade with the UK and we will always welcome the new ideas, innovation and progress brought to our economy by companies such as those selected this evening as National Winners. The British Embassy and the UK Department for International Trade look forward to supporting all companies on the Ones to Watch List with their UK growth plans as they continue to expand.”
