President Maitripala Sirisena, representing Sri Lanka at CHOGM will attend the Commonwealth Business Council on 18 April to deliver a keynote address on "Sustainability Development Goals -Aligning Business, Society and the Governments".

May will commit 212 million pounds ($304 million) to try to make sure children living in developing Commonwealth countries receive 12 years of quality education. An analysis by the Commonwealth Trade Review has found that trading costs between Commonwealth countries are on average 19 per cent less than between non-member countries.

Opening a business forum, focussed on promoting trade and investment within the Commonwealth, May said global growth remained "fragile" faced with challenges such as protectionism, and new technology - which created and supplanted jobs across industries.

The biennial meeting of the heads of government from the Commonwealth nations is taking place in London and Windsor from 16th - 20th April.

The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is participating in the CBF with what it describes as a momentous delegation of almost 40 business leaders across different sectors of the country, led by CII President Rakesh Bharti Mittal, Vice-Chairman of Bharti Enterprises.

"With its unique scope and global voice, such a Commonwealth can set a powerful example to the world, one that demonstrates and underlines the importance of protecting free trade and the rules-based worldwide order", UK Prime Minister Theresa May told a packed hall of business and government leaders.

But some have pointed out that Britain's trade with Commonwealth nations now lags far behind that with its European neighbours.

Chandrajit Banerjee, CII Director-General, said: "The key question is what will be the new-age "common" factor in the Commonwealth?"

Abbasi will participate actively in all executive and retreat sessions as well as a number of events being held on the CHOGM's sidelines.

Theresa May announced that the United Kingdom will be funding a new Commonwealth Standards Network, which will support developing countries in particular to better meet existing worldwide standards.

The UK will also fund a new Trade Facilitation Programme, supporting and providing technical assistance to selected Commonwealth countries in implementing the World Trade Organisation's Trade Facilitation Agreement.
