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.

Marking Sri Lanka’s commitment to the Commonwealth and to promote the spirit of Commonwealth principles, CHOGM 2013 Taskforce has planned various community activities that will enable the public to participate in CHOGM-related events.
