  • This year's edition of the Business-to-Government Summit will be held at the City of London's iconic Mansion House, with participation from all 56 Commonwealth member countries.

Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi will leave Kenya on Sunday for the United Kingdom, where he will represent President Ruto at the Commonwealth Trade and Investment Summit organized by the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council.

 According to a statement from Mudavadi's Communication Directorate, the Commonwealth Trade and Investment Summit (CTIS) is scheduled for Monday, December 5, and Tuesday, December 6, 2022 in London, United Kingdom.

The Summit comes on the heels of the successful Commonwealth Business forum in Kigali, Rwanda in June 2022 and this year’s COP27,” the statement reads in part.

 "This year’s summit will look at strategies for a just and secure transition to sustainable energy, food security and resilience, health technology and the future of health delivery and of green finance," 

 This year's edition of the Business-to-Government Summit will be held at the City of London's iconic Mansion House, with participation from all 56 Commonwealth member countries.

 It is expected to boost intra-commonwealth trade and investment, resuming trade after the economic setbacks caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and the spillover effect of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.

Other topics on the agenda include the evolution of technology, education, public health, youth employment, and collaboration between governments, public and private sectors.

 Kenya has been a member of the Commonwealth since 1963, and according to CS Muidavadi, remains committed to its ideals and objectives.
