“It is with great pleasure that we facilitated this cooperation for our member company, LIG, which is also a part of the B3CF Champions programme, a new initiative helping SMEs from the Nordic & Baltic region trade and invest across the Commonwealth. The cooperation with the Royal Commonwealth Society will help our member company to access new clients across the 52 Commonwealth countries.”
