The Asian Professional Awards are setting up a proud tradition, and the breadth of experience they recognise is outstanding. The quality of nominees was high last year, and this year will be even better. I can think of few better ways to congratulate those that really contribute to society than bestowing upon them an Asian Professional Award. Asian professionals contribute much to British society, and indeed worldwide, and it is fitting that we recognise them so openly.
