The Commonwealth in the Unfolding Global Trade Landscape - Commonwealth Trade Review 2015

The Commonwealth in the Unfolding Global Trade Landscape:
Prospects | Priorities | Perspectives

Fundamental changes are taking place in the global trade landscape, and the Commonwealth, with its diverse membership, is adapting to and coming to terms with these changes. This shifting landscape offers tremendous potential for Commonwealth countries to expand their trade – both between members and their overall trade. Although it is not a trading bloc, member countries can also take advantage of and leverage the Commonwealth for greater gains, while focusing on several broader priorities to improve their trade performance. Commonwealth countries offer insightful perspectives on topical issues that can contribute to promoting the role of trade in development.
