About the webinar

  • Samoa, the first Small Island Developing State from the Blue Pacific to host CHOGM, will seek to unite Commonwealth nations in their pursuit of resilience, sustainability, and a shared future. The theme will look at the core pillars of the Commonwealth through a resilience lens.
