Conclusions from the Commonwealth Conference in Rwanda
On the final day of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting 2022 (CHOGM 2022) in Kigali, under the theme of ‘Delivering a Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming’. Heads of State reaffirmed the importance of taking a comprehensive approach towards trade and sustainability within the Commonwealth, and recognising unique country circumstances and respective capabilities, in the light of different national circumstances, which focuses on sustainably sourced products, and consider the priorities and needs of developing countries and small and vulnerable states.
Leaders also noted the importance of supporting opportunities for women and young people in the trade and called for concrete, innovative partnerships, and solutions to address the root causes of limited women’s participation in the digital economy, including through initiatives aimed at building skills and improving access to digital economies. The meeting also raised more than $4bn in pledges toward the fight against malaria and other tropical diseases and welcomed two new francophone countries into membership – Togo and Gabon.
