Richard Unwin from Mainstrategy is a passionate supporter of the Commonwealth and can provide export sales advice for many parts of this trading area.
Honoured to be a Fellow of the Royal Commonwealth Society . He is also a Companion of The Commonwealth Partnership for Technology Management.
He fervently believes that post Brexit the great Commonwealth of Nations will become closer than ever to Great Britain.
The Head of the Commonwealth, currently Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, is recognised by the members of the Commonwealth of Nations as the “symbol of their free association” and serves as a leader, with assistants who play key roles, such as the Commonwealth Secretary-General and Commonwealth Chair-in-Office.
Being long standing friends and allies and “part of the family”, it follows that excellent trading and business can be done.
The shimmering prospect of the Commonwealth partly replacing the European Union as the primary trading bloc for Britain has became a little more real for its advocates. The Commonwealth Secretariat and the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council hosted ministers and representatives from ‘more than 35 countries’ at Marlborough House on 10 March 2018.
The Commonwealth Secretary-General, Baroness Patricia Scotland, declared: “There is a 19% trade advantage within the Commonwealth. We must see how the global trade landscape can be changed in favour of that advantage.’ She added, however, that ‘no country should be left behind.”
There are sceptics and indeed there are far larger markets beckoning but the Commonwealth will be important to British exporters.
Mainstrategy can provide export sales advice and enjoys excellent access to many parts of the Commonwealth.
