SiGMA is one of the proud sponsors of the CHOGM Business Forum, taking place in St. Julian’s between the 24th and 27th November, 2015. The Commonwealth Business Forum (CBF) took place for the first time at the Edinburgh CHOGM of 1997; since then it has featured prominently as part of the CHOGM programme.
Other prominent sponsors include the Malta Gaming Authority, BOV, Air Malta, Go, Volvo, HSBS, Malta International Airport, and EY.
The Forum is the major business event in the Commonwealth calendar, bringing together Heads of Government, Ministers and top business leaders from around the world. More than a thousand delegates attend.
CBF 2015 is being co-organised by the Commonwealth Economic and Investment Council (CWEIC) and the Government of Malta and 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. The Forum provides an opportunity to influence the debate on global trade and investment issues.
Theme for the Business Forum
Reflecting the overarching CHOGM theme of “The Commonwealth – Adding Global Value”, the Business Forum will reassess how the Commonwealth can provide practical and tangible support to help Governments and the private sector work together to create prosperity and sustainable economic development across all member countries.
