Welcome to the Foreign Press Association
The independent professional body representing foreign journalists working in the UK. Based in the heart of London, only minutes away from Whitehall and Buckingham Palace, the FPA provides the ideal location for foreign correspondents working in the UK. Whether you need to file a story, attend a special briefing or just enjoy a cup of coffee between meetings, the FPA is the first port of call for new correspondents as well as those who know their way around.
The Professor of Energy Policy at Oxford Dieter Helm told FPA members there was no reason to expect any more decisive action on climate change at the UN conference in Paris next year.
The England football manager Roy Hodgson told FPA members at a briefing at Wembley Stadium that 30% of his World Cup squad may not currently be holding down regular first team places in their Club sides. Because there were so many world class players in the Premier League it was harder for good younger footballers to get into the team.
The Chairman of the Policy and Resources Committee at the City of London Corporation told FPA members the UK needed to be fully engaged with the European Union- both politically and through our excellent officials based there, and in the European Parliament.
