BwB CEO, Rupesh Madlani, and BwB Managing Director, Steve Smith, were delighted to meet the Governor of Osaka, Hirofumi Yoshimura, on December 5th. He was visiting London to promote Japan’s third largest city as it prepares to host the World Expo in 2025.
The discussion covered many aspects of sustainability, including BwB’s work with over 100 cities across Europe who have an ambition to achieve Net Zero. There was a focus on sustainable economic growth in the city, including Osaka’s strength as a centre of excellence in life sciences.
“It was a pleasure to meet with the Governor of Osaka to learn about their plans for the future, exchange on policy innovations and how finance can play a key role to unlock better outcomes for citizens. BwB looks forward to further collaboration as we expand our presence across Asia”, commented Rupesh Madlani, CEO of BwB.
The relationship between BwB and Osaka will continue to develop throughout 2023.
