  • HE Turkish Ambassador Unal Cevikoz

The reception will be held on Monday 30 September 17:30-19:00, in Manchester Central, Cobden 4

We are expecting a large number of Turkish and British business representatives to attend, with an interest in bilateral trade as well as joint ventures.

Message from the Prime Minister

“I am proud that our Party continues to innovate each year, organising a Party Conference that demonstrates all we have to offer: from our work in Government, where we are putting our Party values into action; to our commitment to Social Action, whether that be at home or overseas; and everything in between.

Our Conference is the perfect opportunity, not just for Party members to see friends and meet colleagues from across the Party, but also for all delegates and participants to discuss the key issues of the day with a wide variety of politicians, charities, business leaders, international guests, and interest groups.

Each year our Conference goes from strength to strength, finding new ways to give everyone attending the chance to get involved, have their say, and contribute to our Party’s work.

I very much hope you will be able to join us in 2013 in Manchester for yet another great Conference week. I look forward to seeing you there.”

David Cameron
Prime Minister and Leader of the Conservative Party
