imageThe Commonwealth Press Union (CPU) was an association composed of 750 members in 49 countries, including newspaper groups (with several hundred newspapers), individual newspapers, and news agencies throughout the Commonwealth of Nations (Britain and mostly its former colonies). They were represented within the CPU by their proprietors, publishers or senior executives.
imageThe origin of the organisation went back to 1909 with the staging of the first Imperial Press Conference. This led to the creation of the Empire Press Union, which later became the Commonwealth Press Union.
imageThe CPU was wound up on 31 December 2008. According to a press release on the former organisation’s website, a new organisation, provisionally named the Commonwealth Press Training and Education Trust was formed in January 2009 “to carry on the vital work of the CPU”
