Param Singh co-founder of the APA said “When conducting our background research before launching the awards, we were amazed at the high levels of representation of Asians within some professions in Britain including 50% of students studying dentistry, 20% of doctors, 28% of all graduates in finance, and about one out of ten businesses. This shows that Asians are excelling at all levels in the professional world, and the APA seeks to celebrate such achievements.”


The awards will be judged by a panel of industry leaders including CEOs and Senior Directors from the UK’s premier corporate institutions and public bodies.
