The Kerala Business Forum is a platform for the Kerala business community to enhance business activity as well as support businesses aiming to reach out to the community.
The forum will provide quarterly networking sessions to 'meet and chat' with like minded people in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, to publicise business activities and build up business contacts - all by mixing business with pleasure. The process will also bring harmony and goodwill within the community.
Membership to the forum will be an advantage to all businesses, giving recognition as a credible organisation. All members will have equal opportunity and expect to act as goodwill ambassadors. The forum will be independently managed by Kerala Link.
