- The Commonwealth is a voluntary association of independent nations. Its members are pledged to consult together and to cooperate in the common interest of their peoples and in the promotion of international understanding and world peace.
- The Commonwealth consists of one quarter of the people and countries in the world. It draws its membership from all continents and embraces many races, religions and languages. The member countries display every stage of economic development from poor developing nations to wealthy industrialised nations.
- Yet the Commonwealth is one of the strongest voluntary international groupings in the world. The association draws its strength from vital principles of partnership, equality and multiracialism which reflect its origin in the movement of decolonisation.
- The summit of all Commonwealth activities is the meeting of Heads of Commonwealth Governments at two-yearly intervals. Through these meetings they have worked to advance cooperative programmes to fight poverty, combat racism and generate world peace.
