About the Commonwealth Business Council The Commonwealth Business Council (CBC) was established in 1997 with a direct mandate from Heads of Commonwealth Governments to promote trade and investment amongst 54 member nations and increase economic linkages with non‐member countries. CBC’s goal is to achieve economic empowerment for shared global prosperity through the enhancement of private sector contribution to social and economic development.

Hon Julia Gillard MP, Prime Minister of Australia “The nations and peoples of the Commonwealth are enormously diverse, yet these values we share, our distinctive way of doing things and our distinctive set of concerns for the world’s people, unite us in a way that is truly wonderful ... Our friends in the Business Council call it the “Commonwealth factor”, the web of connections, friendships and values that drive opportunity among the 54 nations of our fellowship. HE Prof. John Evans Atta Mills, President of Ghana “It is a fact that the Commonwealth Business Council has facilitated intra‐Commonwealth trade and investment flows, influenced development of dynamic trade policies, and encouraged public private partnerships”
