Join Her Majesty the Queen’s representative in Lancashire, The Rt Hon. The Lord Shuttleworth KG, KCVO, as he welcomes representatives from across the Commonwealth to Preston.
You are invited to join us at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) for the ‘Commonwealth Connect’ event.
Lord Shuttleworth said: ‘Lancashire is delighted to host the Commonwealth Connect business celebration. The event will provide a great platform on which Commonwealth countries can showcase trade and relationship opportunities. Commonwealth countries can do more to expand trade links with the UK – there is a competitive advantage in member states trading, let’s take this opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to each other and highlight the valuable opportunities that our respective nations offer”.
This important, business-focused celebration, is being hosted by North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Moneycorp.
Commonwealth Connect will feature a unique opportunity to meet directly with Trade Organisations from across the Commonwealth. There will be live export and investment opportunities showcased by country experts. These include the UK Asean Business Council covering Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei; British Caribbean Chamber of Commerce, South African Chamber of Commerce and Altios International covering Australia amongst many others.
The event will begin with breakfast followed by an official welcome from the Lord Lieutenant and representatives from overseas.
