Fiji PM heads to CHOGM
5:04 pm GMT+12, 12/04/2018, Fiji

Fijian Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama will leave for the United Kingdom today to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in London.
 
While there the PM will lobby delegates on the reality of climate change and its effects on Fiji and the region which is more than evident given the frequency and ferocity of natural disasters.
 
“Well I’ve asked to talk on COP23 of course, the Blue Charter and on Plastics, so I’ll be concentrating on that.”
 
The theme for the meeting is ‘Towards a Common Future’ which will involve deliberations from 52 nations that make up the Commonwealth.
 
CHOGM will have four forums attached to the meeting proper which will include platforms for Youth, Women, People and Business.
 
Discussions will centre on global challenges and how countries could effectively work together to better tackle the issues.

A Leaders Retreat will be held at Windsor Castle where more frank dialogue is expected among delegates while a course is set for future Commonwealth cooperation.
 
It’s estimated that the Commonwealth has a combined population of 2.4 billion with over 60 percent of that population under 30 years of age.
 
The meeting will be held from 16 - 18 April.
