The Commonwealth Advantage in International Trade

The Rt Hon Baroness Patricia Scotland QC, Secretary General, Commonwealth Secretariat is leading the line-up of speakers who will explore how to harness the ‘Commonwealth advantage’ at a forum in London on 13th July 2017. The event is being hosted by our colleague Mr Richard Moir, and will consider how members of the Commonwealth already enjoy a trade advantage without any formalised relationship. The harmony in relations across the Commonwealth means we trade on average around 20% more compared to other partners and benefit from lower trade costs arising from our commonalities. These factors suggest there is potential for greater cooperation that will stimulate bilateral trade, funding and investment flows.

The one day forum will examine how we can get our trade, finance and investment governance structures fit for purpose within the context of 21century trade – in anticipation of the next production revolution – is a prerequisite to regenerative development.

The event is organised in collaboration with Pinsent Masons and the London Wealth Forum will explore how the Commonwealth advantage in international trade can be more effectively harnessed to this effect.

Tickets cost £55 per person and include lunch and an evening reception. Spaces are limited and to reserve a place or obtain further information please contact Richard Moir at [email protected] RSVP by 11 July.
