With one year to go until the Commonwealth Games 2022 join us for a week of free virtual events to learn about opportunities for your business in a range of Commonwealth markets.

Market Webinars: Explore the Commonwealth
Today’s 54 Commonwealth countries account for over 17% of world GDP in Purchasing Power Parity and contain 2.4 billion of the world’s 7½ billion people.
Even without any formal arrangements, trading between Commonwealth countries is 19% cheaper than with non-members. Massive cost cuts come from shared history, cultural links, common legal systems, business practices, and a common language between many Commonwealth countries. This is also known as ‘the Commonwealth advantage’.
We want to support your business in exploring new and exciting markets across the Commonwealth.
Throughout the week you can also join a series of market awareness webinars including live and pre-recorded input from export experts in the following markets: Africa, South Asia, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, Canada and Pakistan. During these sessions you will receive key insights into each market including export opportunities for UK businesses and what support is out there to help you access them.
The Department for International Trade (DIT), is the government department responsible for helping UK companies do more business overseas. We are responsible for promoting British trade across the world and ensuring the UK takes advantage of the huge opportunities open to us.
