Event Summary

Commonwealth Business Forum 2015

24 - 26 November 2015

Hilton Hotel

St Julians, Malta

The Commonwealth Business Forum (CBF) took place for the first time at the Edinburgh CHOGM of 1997; since then it has featured prominently as part of the CHOGM programme. The Forum is the major business event in the Commonwealth calendar, bringing together Heads of Government, Ministers and top business leaders from around the world. More than a thousand delegates attend.

CBF 2015 is being co-organised by the Commonwealth Economic and Investment Council (CWEIC) and the Government of Malta and is designed to provide a space for high level dialogue between business and Government leaders from the Commonwealth and beyond. An important aim is to develop stronger partnerships between Governments and business to ensure that the Commonwealth plays its part in promoting sustainable growth across the world. The CBF also serves as a platform for Commonwealth nations to showcase investment opportunities to the global business community. The Forum provides an opportunity to influence the debate on global trade and investment issues.
