Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Commonwealth Business Council (CBC) in partnership with Bangladesh Enterprise Institute yesterday launched its business forum in Bangladesh to generate awareness on the event among businesspeople.

The CBC, the Australian government and private-sector representatives will co-organise the Commonwealth Business Forum 2011.

The event will be held in Perth from October 25-27 prior to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting as one of the associated events. It will focus on the theme: Partnering for Global Growth: the Commonwealth, Indian Ocean and the Pacific Rim.

Australian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Justin Lee urged business leaders to participate in the event as it will help them explore emerging business opportunities and network with others.

The forum in Perth will highlight new global economic partnerships for trade and investment in key sectors across the Commonwealth and beyond, said Arif Zaman, an adviser to CBC.
