Since 2007, the QI Group has been in partnership with the Commonwealth Business Council (CBC), to sponsor the Commonwealth Business Forum (CBF), a high-ranking international business summit that brings together hundreds of government and business leaders from all over the Commonwealth and beyond. This year, we had the opportunity to host a CBC event in Malaysia, the operational Headquarters of the QI Group. This much awaited event, known as the Global Business Leaders Forum (GBLF), took place at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on 22-23 November 2010 with QI Group as the principal sponsor. The forum was opened by The Honourable Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak, the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

What is the Global Business Leaders Forum?

GBLF is a forum for high level networking between Commonwealth and international leaders from government and business. This year’s forum was organised by the Commonwealth Business Council in association with the Asian Strategy & Leadership Institute (ASLI) and supported by the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) and the Government of Malaysia. The specific aim of the forum was to track leading edge thinking on new business models and trends in global markets, and provide a high level platform for business-to-business networking. With strong delegations from Commonwealth countries, each bringing a regional as well as national dimension to the forum, the event served as an effective platform to address both trends in the global economy and in specific economic sectors. Organised in plenary sessions, it focused broadly on the following topics:-
  • Driving Trade and Investment Flows between Commonwealth and Asia
  • PPP for Infrastructure
  • Entrepreneurship, Skills and Leadership
  • Creating a Sustainable Energy Mix
  • Islamic Products & Finance
  • Transformation and Innovation for Global Growth
  • New Technology: Innovations from Emerging Markets

QI Group Executive Chairman Mr. Vijay Eswaran was among the many prominent business leaders who addressed the two-day forum. Other prominent speakers included The Honourable Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz, Former Minister of International Trade & Industry, Malaysia; Mr Vijay Poonoosamy, Vice President International & Public Affairs, Etihad Airways, UAE; Mr Nicholas Tan Gung Wu, Vice President Energy Service Fossil, Siemens Malaysia Sdn Bhd;Tan Tan Sri Dr. Mohd Munir Abdul Majid, Chairman of Malaysia Airlines; Datuk Dr Rebecca Fatima Sta Maria, Deputy Secretary-General, Ministry of International Trade & Industry, Malaysia; and Mr. James Mulwana, Chairman of Standard Bank, Uganda and Senior Board Member of the CBC.
