Director General of the Commonwealth Business Council, Peter
Callaghan called on External Minister Affairs, Prof. G.L. Peiris for
discussions relating to the arrangements under way for the Business
Forum which will be held in Colombo in November on the sidelines of the
Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).
The Commonwealth Business Council in London is collaborating actively
with the Ministry of External Affairs to enhance the inflow of
investment into Sri Lanka, as a result of the Business Forum.
Chambers of Business and Commerce and major entrepreneurs from
countries in the Commonwealth, as well as from several other countries
which have significant trade links with Sri Lanka, are expected to
participate in the Business Forum. Many leading business personalities
have already confirmed participation.
