Secretary of State at the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy speaks to business leaders 

The Rt Hon Kwasi Kwarteng MP, Secretary of State at the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, spoke to over 100 Suffolk business leaders at a special event organised by the Ipswich Suffolk Business Club in November 2021.  

The event was hosted and sponsored by Milsoms Kesgrave Hall and Spa along with pub retailer and brewer Greene King and leading East Anglian PR and digital agency PLMR | Genesis. 

Kwasi Kwarteng gave an energetic, insightful talk on the government’s relationship with businesses and climate change. He said Suffolk and East Anglia are at the leading edge of science, research, and innovation.  

Toby Kramers, chair of Ipswich Suffolk Business Club, said: “It was a pleasure to host The Rt Hon Kwasi Kwarteng MP at our event at Milsoms Kesgrave Hall. 

“Suffolk has a plethora of SMEs and LEPs and is hugely diverse in the number of businesses leading the way in science, research, and innovation, especially with renewable energy and other technology. 

“Kwasi delivered an engaging speech for members including talking about the Sizewell C campaign, LEPs, and the urban/rural divide and how important this is for Suffolk businesses.”
