"British business is drawing on their unique experience on delivering in London to do the same for Rio. So, 22 British companies have already won contracts worth 70 million pounds for the World Cup the Olympics, and I've brought over fifty of Britain's top businesses here today to put them in the fast lane for projects that could be worth up to 250 million pounds."
