The Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council, the CHOGM Taskforce, the Commonwealth Club of Rome, LUISS Business School and the Association Alumni MBA LUISS BS are pleased to invite you to the Launch in Italy of the Commonwealth Business Forum 2015:

Monday 25 May, 2015 @ 16.00

Aula Magna, LUISS Business School

Viale Pola, 12. Roma

The Commonwealth Business Forum (CBF) is a business gathering which takes places alongside the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting (CHOGM). Just like there is a business forum, the B20, alongside the G20, there is a business forum alongside CHOGM. The CBF 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. Business leaders from the 53 commonwealth nations will meet other business leaders from the rest of the world. The Forum provides an opportunity to influence the debate on global trade and investment issues.

This year’s CBF is prioritising infrastructure, technology, health, financial services and tourism.

This year’s CBF takes place in November in Malta, on Italy’s doorstep.

The Launch in Italy is an opportunity for Commonwealth representatives present in Italy to have a sneak preview of what is going to be discussed in November in Malta.

The Launch in Italy is also an opportunity for Italian business leaders to consider doing business with the commonwealth and to understand what opportunities may be waiting for them if they go to Malta in November.

The organizers of the CBF, from the Uk, Lord Marland, Chairman of the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council, and, from Malta, Phyllis Muscat, Head of the CHOGM Taskforce (set up by Maltese Govt to coordinate the CHOGM and CBF events), will be our keynote speakers.

The Commonwealth Club of Rome is pleased to be able to be involved in an event which brings the commonwealth to rome.

LUISS Business School and the Association Alumni MBA LUISS BS are pleased to host this event especially because they are already collaborating with many Commonwealth nations and their business leaders, and are currently developing a number of initiatives that could be of interest to Commonwealth nations.

We all look forward to welcoming you on 25 May. Following the speakers there will be some time for networking and cocktails will be offered. Please register clicking on the following link…
