MBA winners will attend a function hosted by the Secretary of State for Wales at The Foreign and Commonwealth Office

The Government is to hold a special function in recognition of the contribution made to the Welsh economy by past winners of the Monmouthshire Business Awards.

The Secretary of State for Wales, David Jones MP, invited all 28 finalists to the reception at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on March 5.

Award organisers, sponsors and other representatives from the county will also attend.

The development, which we revealed earlier this month, has been published in a number of key regional titles, including the South Wales Argus and the Business Argus supplement

It is set to appear in other titles including the Monmouthshire Beacon, Abergavenny Focus, Abergavenny Chronicle, and the Chepstow Free Press in coming days.

Now in their third year, the MBAs, which are sponsored by Monmouthshire County Council, recognise innovation, talent and enterprise in the area.

Almost 200 guests, including representatives of Monmouthshire County Council, Economy, Science and Transport Minister Edwina Hart, Monmouth MP David Davies and Monmouth AM Nick Ramsay, attended the MBA 2013 awards at St Pierre Hotel & Country Club, Chepstow, last October.

This year’s Awards will officially launch on March 14 and will feature 12 award categories. More information about the launch, including this year’s celebrity judges, will be announced by Palamedes PR in coming weeks.
