INTRODUCTION OF COMMONWEALTH NATIONS

The Commonwealth is a unique global family of 54 countries. From Africa to Asia, from the Pacific to Caribbean, from Europe and the Mediterranean to North America, the commonwealth’s membership stretches across all the world’s continents and oceans and includes 1.8 billion people, or 30% of the world’s population. Commonwealth countries support each other and work together in the common interest of their citizens for development, democracy and peace. The origins of the Commonwealth come from Britain's former Empire. Many of the members of the Commonwealth were territories which had historically come under British rule at various times by settlement, conquest or cession. The Queen is Queen of 16 of the 54 Commonwealth member countries, all of them fully independent. Her Majesty is represented by a Governor-General in all Realms except the United Kingdom. The Heads of Government from the 54 member countries meet every two years to discuss common issues. These meetings are known as Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings, or CHOGMs for short. The first CHOGM was held in Singapore in January 1971.
