Call for business news in Commonwealth markets

Walpole have been asked by the DIT to gather information from member companies about any commercial announcements between the UK and Commonwealth member countries – for example investment, new market openings, joint ventures connected to Commonwealth markets that can be announced by Senior Government officials during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting taking place here in London from the 16th-20th April.

The Department for International Trade & Investment have been advised that Senior Government Officials will be visiting the UK in the coming weeks for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).

In support of this visit they are collating a package of commercial announcements between the UK and Commonwealth member countries, e.g. contract signings and investment announcements. As such, they are keen to engage with Walpole members if they are likely to have any commercial announcements connected to these markets – which are not already in the public domain and can be announced by Senior Government Officials.

Please complete the table that can be downloaded here and return to Matthew Rice.

On receipt, the team will be in touch to discuss further. No assurances can be given from the outset that deals will form part of the package of announcements for the visit.
