The Commonwealth


about-us

The Commonwealth is a voluntary association of 53 sovereign states, which work together to achieve international goals. Spread over every continent and ocean, the Commonwealth's 2.3 billion people make up 32% of the world’s population and encompass a vast number of races, religions, languages and cultures, and some of the world’s largest, smallest, richest and poorest countries.

The Commonwealth values of development, democracy and diversity along with a common working language and compatible systems of governance and law provide fertile ground for our activities.

Further information on the Commonwealth can be found on the Commonwealth Secretariat's website at www.thecommonwealth.org .
