Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) – Request for Commercial Announcements

By March 8, 2018 Industry News

UKTI  have been advised that Senior Government Officials will be visiting the UK in the coming weeks for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).

In support of this visit they are collating a package of commercial announcements between the UK and Commonwealth member countries, e.g. contract signings and investment announcements. As such, they are keen to engage with you if you are likely to have any commercial announcements connected to these markets – which are not already in the public domain and can be announced by Senior Government Officials.

Please complete the below table and return to Matthew Rice ( by Tuesday 27th March 2018

On receipt, the team will be in touch to discuss further. No assurances can be given from the outset that deals will form part of the package of announcements for the visit.




Please state what the announcement is including relevant background (no more than 2-3 short paragraphs).


To reiterate, announcements need to be new and not already in the public domain.

Has the contract/MoU already been signed? What are the timescales associated?
Contract or MoU value: State in UK GBP
UK jobs: Will the announcement lead to the creation of permanent or temporary and/or safeguard jobs in the UK? If so, how many?
UK region: Is there a specific UK region which will benefit from this announcement?
Are you already in touch with someone from the Department for International Trade either in the UK or overseas? If so, please state who.  


If you have any questions or want to discuss further, please get in touch with Matthew Rice at the Department for International Trade by email (
