Kwasi Kwarteng named UK Business Minister in Boris government Featured

By PATRICK KWAME ABROKWAH-DJAMPEM July 26, 2019 3566 37 comments

Kwasi Alfred Addo Kwarteng is a British Conservative Party politician who has served since 2010 as the MP for Spelthorne, Surrey, south-east England.

On November 16 2018, he was appointed Undersecretary of State in the Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU), following the resignation of Sue-Ellen Braverman.

Mr Kwarteng was promoted yesterday after Boris Johnson’s appointment as the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He becomes Minister of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and is a senior member of the government attending cabinet.

Born in Waltham Forest, north-east London, Mr Kwarteng studied at Eton College and moved on to the University of Cambridge, where he took a doctorate in British history.

He graduated from Harvard University and has written several books, including Ghosts of Empire, War and Gold and Thatcher’s Trial.

Mr Kwarteng has served as a member of the public accounts committee and as parliamentary private secretary to the Leader of the House of Lords, Baroness Evans of Bowes Park.

Achievement

Since he first became an MP in 2010, he has consistently supported local enterprise and called in Parliament for business-friendly reforms.

One of Mr Kwarteng’s achievements is finding local entrepreneurs of tomorrow. He launched the Spelthorne Business Plan Competition in 2013. The contest ran successfully for three years and was held again in 2017.

He has been a leading voice in the campaign to increase Heathrow Airport’s capacity and he will continue to ensure that it remains one of the world’s top airports.

Kwarteng frequently has been tipped to become Britain’s first black Tory cabinet minister. Popularly known as “the black Boris”, he could go all the way to the top. The Mail Online reports that one ally has observed that the comparisons with Boris Johnson do him a disservice.
