We have joined the CommonWealth Trade Enterprise And Investment Council (CWEIC). As an international market research company, Vision One is delighted to have become part of CWEIC. The CWEIC comprises a large network of people joined together to develop their businesses, grow their knowledge and expand into different global markets.
The CWEIC is a membership organisation that promotes trade and investment by facilitating engagement between governments and the private sector throughout the Commonwealth.
The new business and trade platform has been designed to promote international trade and investment across the Commonwealth and was formally launched in London on Wednesday, 8th May.
In partnership with the AMPP group, CWEIC has developed the Commonwealth trade initiative. Launched in May 2017 and similar to aspects of LinkedIn, this is a new members-only digital business and trade platform designed to bring companies from across the Commonwealth. The initiative is supported by the Foreign and Commonwealth office and a wide range of international strategic partners from around the Commonwealth.
Speaking ahead of the launch, Oliver Everett, Chief Executive at the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council, said:
“The Commonwealth presents an enormous growth opportunity for global businesses looking to expand into new markets, and the launch of this new initiative could not come at a better time. The engagement we’re seeing already prior to its launch demonstrates clearly the extent to which global businesses can see the value of the Commonwealth markets as an important growth engine.
The Commonwealth offers a unique forum for developed and emerging market economies to collaborate and integrate through increasing trade and investment. The Commonwealth Trade Initiative will help unlock a new frontier of trade opportunities.”
The platform is free to join and members can take advantage of a sophisticated business matching function, which automatically provides them with targeted business leads based on their user profile information. Their unique mixture of contacts and power ensures that businesses have a local presence across all member countries.
