FIFTY-THREE Commonwealth nations will gather at the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in the United Kingdom next month.

And The Queen is looking forward to meeting these leaders.

“Gatherings like the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting are fine examples of how consensus and commitment can help to create a future that is fairer, more secure, more prosperous and sustainable,” said British High Commissioner Melanie Hopkins.

Ms Hopkins spoke on behalf of The Queen at the Commonwealth Day reception hosted by President Jioji Konrote at Borron House in Suva on Monday night.

The theme of this year’s celebration is “Towards a common future”.

The venues for the meeting are Buckingham Palace, St James’s Palace, and Windsor Castle in England.
