St. Kitts and Nevis joins citizens of the 54 Commonwealth countries within the Caribbean and Americas, Africa, Asia, the Pacific and Europe, in celebration of Commonwealth Day.
Recognized annually on the 8th of March, it creates an opportunity for member states to reiterate shared goals, to recognize diversity, and to renew commitment to the enduring values of the Commonwealth.
In commemoration of the day, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Patron of the CPA and Head of the Commonwealth made this statement:
Meantime: Chairperson of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) Executive Committee and Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Cameroon, the Hon. Emilia Monjowa Lifaka, said in a statement on the day (and I quote) “the COVID-19 pandemic may have physically separated many of us this year, but the bond that connects the various peoples of the Commonwealth remains strong.” End quote.
The theme of this year’s Commonwealth Day is ‘Delivering a common future: connecting, innovating and transforming’.
