Following his open letter to international English language students, Graham Stuart, Minister for Exports joins the summit to reassure all in the sector of the UK's expertise in English language teaching and to encourage the return of students.

In his letter he said: "We are now ready to give the warmest of welcomes to students from every part of the world"

"With restrictions now easing across the UK, our English language teaching sector is reopening alongside our restaurants, cafes, shops and tourist attractions. They are all keen to welcome students back to our shores. Our schools, staff and host families have been preparing for the return of students, focussing on their safety needs, following the latest government advice and guidance, and so ensuring that students can book their courses in the UK with confidence."
