The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) 2013 will be one of the largest events Sri Lanka has hosted in a long time. The conference will not only be an event to discuss important global issues but also a celebration of the common values that bind Commonwealth nations together to work toward common goals.
