Message from CWEIC Chief Executive, Richard Burge


“This newsletter is full of ambition. Two new strategic partners (one the government of a Crown Dependency and the other an international business) describe the Commonwealth from their perspective, and the role they see it playing in their own growth. We interview Lord David Howell, one of the most consistent and important supporters of the Commonwealth, in which he sets new goals based on a very 21st century view of world. There is an article form our strategic partner Standard Chartered Bank on the action they are taking to empower women and girls to be full equal participants in business and enterprise.

All of this encapsulates for me the key purpose of the Commonwealth; it is to provide a unique, vigorous, and enthusiastic network that encourages and supports our ambition to increase prosperity and generate economic opportunity. Enjoy and be inspired!”
