With less than two weeks left to nominate in the first annual Welsh Asian Business Awards, anticipation is running high within the business community. The prestigious event promises to celebrate and recognize the local businesses and individual businessmen and women within the Welsh Asian Community for their exceptional achievements and contribution to Welsh industry.
The glamorous ceremony takes place on February 10th 2011 at Cardiff City Hall with nominations closing on January 27th 2011. Nomination categories include the following: The Young Achiever of the Year, Small Business of the Year, Franchisee of the Year, Business of the Year Award, Community of the Year Award, Businesswoman of the Year, Businessman of the Year, Lifetime Achievement Award, and Entrepreneur of the Year.
The event which will include entertainment and an awards ceremony has even sparked praise from Mohammad Asghar, Shadow Minister for Equality, and the first Assembly Member from an ethnic minority who recently voiced his support and wants to encourage the Welsh Asian business community to also show their support by nominating:
“I am delighted to offer my support to the Welsh Asian Business Awards, which will play a significant role in promoting the diverse and multicultural society we have here in Wales. Many Welsh Asian businessmen and businesswomen have achieved so much and worked so hard to contribute to the nation’s economy and this event will showcase some of their talents. I urge people across Wales to put forward nominations to support this event and to pay tribute to some of the fine business talents the Welsh Asian Community has to offer”.
Yasmin Mahmood , the Campaign Manager for the event believes that it’s the appropriate time to honor the Asian businessmen and women who contribute so much to the Welsh economy and their community:
“Considering that we are still in the process of overcoming a national economic crisis, it is fitting to recognize those that have prevailed and played such a significant role in creating a more positive and stable future for the Welsh economy. We want to reward those Welsh Asian businessmen and women who have shown great entrepreneurial achievements and acute business acumen in these financially challenging times.”
