CHOGM 2015 Meeting in Malta

287

The meeting of Commonwealth Head of Government 2015 (CHOGM 2015) held in Malta, concluded on 29th November 2015 in which about 53 Commonwealth countries attended the meeting.

The next Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) will be held in Malta, from 27 to 29 November 2015. Heads of Governments welcomed the offer of Malta to host CHOGM when they met in Sri Lanka in 2013. Meetings will take place at a number of historical venues around Malta, while the Heads of Government retreat will be held at Fort St. Angelo, situated in Vittoriosa.
The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting brings together leaders of an immensely diverse yet cohesive grouping of 53 countries representing one third of humanity.
They assemble from islands and continents at varying stages of development to work on common approaches and to plan practical action motivated by the shared values and principles of the Commonwealth Charter. Goodwill and cooperation, supported by an enduring sense of affinity between the peoples of the Commonwealth, pave the way to fresh approaches to collective benefit.
The CHOGM will hear the views of the people of the Commonwealth through forums for youth, women, business, and civil society.
