About the Program

Commonwealth Leaders committed themselves to the vision of increasing intra-Commonwealth trade to US$2 Trillion by 2030, and expanding intra-Commonwealth investment. This is to be achieved through the Commonwealth Connectivity Agenda for Trade and Investment. The Commonwealth Connectivity Agenda is a platform for countries to exchange best practices and experiences to trade and invest and undertake domestic reform. This cross-fertilization will contribute to further reducing trade frictions among members.
