The first ever multilateral business delegation arrived in Sri Lanka last week led by the Commonwealth of Nations and the nine-member pioneering team from the Commonwealth Businesswomen’s Network (CBN). Representing one billion women-folk of C’wealth, the delegation were seeking to partner with promising Lankan women owned businesses, the Ministry of Industry and Commerce said.

The CBWMTD delegation is to continue their networking efforts further during the coming days of their stay in Colombo. CBN believes that over $1 trillion in trade will be achieved between the 53 country member C’wealth grouping by 2020.
