Lord Mayor of the City of London


Lord Mayor of the City of London visits Beursplein 5

The Lord Mayor of the City of London opens trading by sounding the gong to mark the City of London Corporation’s Pre-Presidency visit to the Netherlands and to celebrate the City’s longstanding and enduring relationship with the European Union.

The City of London Corporation provides local government and policing services for the financial and commercial heart of Britain, the 'Square Mile'. In addition, the City Corporation supports and promotes the ‘City’ as a world-leading financial and business hub, with outward and inward business delegations, high-profile civic events and research-driven policies all reflecting a long-term approach.

The Lord Mayor is head of the Square Mile’s City of London authority for one year. The Lord Mayor represents City businesses and helps the City Corporation advise the Government of the day on what is needed to help the financial services sector to function well. The Lord Mayor will meet several international Heads of Government and business each month to discuss financial services, often in conjunction with senior City business representatives.

The Policy Chairman sets the strategic direction of the organisation and is the lead political spokesperson for the Corporation.
