Boris Johnson and Think London have outlined a range of measures to attract foreign investors to London.

The plan called London Now, outlined this morning at MIPIM, aims to provide overseas companies up to 12 months of free office space and the use of a dedicated adviser to support firms in setting up a London base.

Next week it will host a delegation of business executives from China as well as starting a road show in north America.

Johnson said: 'London offers magnificent opportunities for overseas business with unrivalled access to western markets, a skilled workforce and one of the most diverse social and leisure scenes in the world.'
