About CHOGM Malta 2015
Malta is hosting the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting for a second time, having successfully done so in 2005. As an island state in the Mediterranean Sea, Malta has served throughout history as a bridge between North Africa and Europe. Now, as the CHOGM host for 2015, Malta provides a platform for Commonwealth countries to come together to build bridges of cooperation. CHOGM Malta 2015 will be held between the 27 and 29 of November 2015.
The Theme for CHOGM Malta 2015
Adding Global Value is about using the Commonwealth’s strengths in international politics to influence and eventually effect change on important global issues. It is also about making a positive difference to the lives of Commonwealth citizens. Adding Global Value seeks to unify the Commonwealth behind an ambitious policy agenda that bequeaths to our young a life of liberty, dignity and prosperity. Besides, considering its geographical extent around the globe, actions and initiatives taken at Commonwealth level will undoubtedly add to global values.
The Common Wealth
The Commonwealth is a voluntary association of 53 independent states with a combined population of 2.2 billion. The association came together in 1949, after the decolonisation of the British Empire. Symbolically headed by HM Queen Elizabeth II, the Commonwealth includes some of the world’s largest, smallest, richest and poorest nations. Countries have no legal obligation to each other yet are all guided by the principles contained in The Charter of the Commonwealth: democracy, human rights and the rule of law. They are also united through language, history and culture.
