Malayalees abroad are hardworking people said Kerala legislative assembly speaker P Ramakrishnan. He praised their resilience and said that the high living standards enjoyed in Kerala was partially due to the investment of the Malayalee community abroad including that of British Malayalees.

The successive governments have introduced many schemes to attract investments from Malayalees abroad and said that the current government will be going even further with the impending introduction of new schemes. The Speaker also spoke in depth about Kerala media outlets sensationalising trivial news items at the detrimental effect on the quality and accuracy of the news.  He also spoke about the popularity of social media in conveying information in modern society.

The Speakers address was followed by a Question and Answer session moderated by MAUK secretary Sreejith Sreedharan.  During this session that lasted about 40 minutes, the Secretary introduced the invited guests present from other community organisations including Progressive Malayalee Society, Sreenarayana Guru Mission, Kerala Catholic Association, UK Malayalee Cricket League and Retired Members Association.  Over 15 questions and concerns on varied subjects were put to the Speaker, for which he responded adequately with his profound knowledge and experience.  In response to a concern raised by Nihas Rawther, MAUK director about the lack of direct flight from London to Kerala, the speaker guaranteed his support and assistance in making this a reality. He promised to escalate the matter to the attention of the current government. 

MAUK Director Anilkumar Edavana presented the Speaker with a copy of the book and DVD published as part of MAUK's flagship project Our Story: Onam which teaches children in UK primary schools about Onam and Kerala culture.

MAUK Elder Director Raveendran Nair presented the Hon. Speaker with a bouquet and invited him to the podium. MAUK Chair Sudheer Vasudevan welcomed the speaker and the audience.  He expressed his delight in welcoming the Speaker to Kerala House and reminded that Shri Sreeramakrishnan was the 3rd Kerala Speaker of Kerala to visit Kerala House.
