British Prime Minister Concludes First US Trip with Visit to NYC

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

In his first trip to the U.S. since his election in May, British Prime Minister David Cameron is wrapping up his two-day stay here in New York.

Cameron met with President Barack Obama Tuesday, and is in New York today to meet with the heads of JP Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Bank of New York Mellon, BlackRock and Citadel. 

Cameron laid a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery this morning and was briefed by the Pentagon on developments in Afghanistan.

In addition to his meetings with CEOs, Cameron is scheduled to meet Mayor Michael Bloomberg and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

It's great that the new British Prime Minister Cameron came to the Baked Apple after his visit with President Obama. Why would he want to meet with business' like Goldman Sachs & JP Morgan Chase who acted recklessly to help cause the housing market to burst and the Great Recession. The United Kingdom has better standards than doing business with them. It makes no difference if NYC gets taxes from their bonuses.

I am impressed by the humbleness and firm stand by the PM. US needs more solid relationships like this one. Less fluff, more business.
