Addressing business persons, H.E Rowan Laxton said the Commonwealth is a diverse community of 54 nations that work together to promote prosperity and peace.
To him, the most important thing is to interact and collaborate with each other for a common goal.
“We have to work together for a common future and this is the way we shall all prosper in our various businesses. We shall need to build skills and create jobs for the jobless. The Commonwealth is a diverse community of 54 nations that work together to promote prosperity and peace,” the British Diplomate said.

On his path, the Minister Delegate in the Ministry of External Relations in charge of Relations with the Commonwealth, Felix Mbayo, acknowledged that for investors to come on board, there must be peace and fairness.
He added that Cameroon is ready to welcome companies who are willing to invest in the country.

Talking on the challenges faced by entrepreneurs, the representative from the Nuclear Base Companies, Matilt Malado, said doing business without thinking of the future is meaningless.
