Mayor for London Ken Livingstone is to be the keynote speaker at a major cross-border investment conference being staged by Property Week on Wednesday next week

Livingstone will be responding to questions set to be raised on his new planning powers by Corporation of London policy chief Michael Snyder, as well as explaining the attractions of investing in London to a high-powered audience at the Treasury’s Whitehall HQ.

The conference will examine why overseas investors are buying into London, and why UK buyers are at the same time investing abroad – all making London most people’s candidate as `Real Estate Capital of the World’.

Tickets for the conference are selling out fast, but to come along call Catherine Moore on 020 7560 4082 or e-mail
