Secretary-General: Commonwealth collaboration key to global stability

The Commonwealth is well placed to tackle daunting global challenges such as climate change, extremism, inequality and poverty, Secretary-General Patricia Scotland told participants at an international conference yesterday.

Speaking to an audience of business leaders and government officials at the Horasis Global Meeting 2017, the Secretary-General outlined the Commonwealth’s powerful potential to support peace-building, stability, resilience and sustainability through its shared values and the cooperation of governments.

“Common law, shared language, and similar systems of governance, administration, and regulation, give us a truly remarkable advantage when we work together,” she said. “The immense good that is achieved through cooperation between governments, ministerial meetings, and official dialogue, is immeasurably enhanced by the vigour and dedication of Commonwealth civil society organisations, professional bodies and other groups.”
