In April 2018, for the first time since 1997, the UK will host all 52 Commonwealth leaders for the 25th Commonwealth Summit; representing the interests of over 2.6 billion people. Throughout the Summit 10,000 top leaders from business, politics, academia and culture will come together to showcase the Commonwealth’s vibrant and diverse network. This is a truly unique and historic opportunity to promote and celebrate the very best of the Commonwealth to a global audience.
