ALT TAG HERECommonwealth Heads of Government met in the United Kingdom from 19 to 20 April 2018 and discussed how the Common-wealth can contribute to a future which is fairer, more sustainable, more secure and more prosperous.

Given that 60 percent of the Common-wealth’s population are under the age of 30, Heads of Government affirmed that youth empowerment, as well as gender equality, are critical in realising the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda) and the aspirations of the Commonwealth Charter.

Considering that small states constitute over 60 percent of the Commonwealth’s membership, Heads recognised that the Commonwealth has always been a strong advocate for the causes of small states, and has consistently raised international awareness of their inherent vulnerabilities.

Heads recognised that the strength of the Commonwealth lay in the collaboration among its member countries, people-to-people organisations and the Commonwealth Secretariat.
