The Commonwealth Business Forum (CBF) is the largest business event convened under the Commonwealth umbrella. Held directly preceding the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, CBF brings together Presidents, Prime Ministers, Senior Ministers and officials together with private sector leaders.
The twelfth Commonwealth Business Forum will be held in Kigali, Rwanda in June 2020.
Organised by CWEIC, in partnership with the Government of Rwanda, through the Rwanda Development Board, CBF 2020 will bring together 1,300 delegates from across the Commonwealth.
Under the Chair of HE Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda, we expect CBF 2020 to be addressed by 20 Commonwealth Heads of Government, as well as senior business leaders from across the Commonwealth, and beyond.
CBF 2020, will be the first held in Africa in over 12 years. The last since CBF 2007 in Kampala, CBF and the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting will be the first hosted by Rwanda, which joined the Commonwealth in November 2009.
CBF 2020 will be a platform for B2G and B2B discussion at the very highest levels addressing the key themes that affect the 53 diverse Commonwealth members.
