Secretary General of the Commonwealth Kamalesh Sharma today officially declared the country which will host the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in 2015.

The final executive session of CHOGM was held today in Battaramulla and the BMICH.

The Secretary General of the Commonwealth made this declaration during the press conference held at the conclusion of the summit.

Mauritius which was scheduled to host CHOGM in 2015 lost its opportunity to host the summit due to boycotting this year’s summit and Malta has been chosen in place of Mauritius to host CHOGM in 2015.

The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting 2013 commenced on the 10th with the participation of 67 leaders from the Commonwealth nations.

This includes seven Presidents, five Vice Presidents, 13 Prime Ministers, 33 Foreign Ministers and nine other Heads of Delegates from all 53 Commonwealth countries.

His Royal Highness Prince of Wales and Duke of Cornwall officially inaugurated the CHOGM.

Every CHOGM is jointly organized by the host country and the Commonwealth Secretariat.

These biennial meetings serve as the principal policy and decision-making forum to guide the strategic direction of the association.
