Commonwealth Day – Towards a Common Future

53 countries around the world today celebrate Commonwealth Day.

In Malta, the occasion has been celebrated at St Benedict’s Primary schools and at ITS, where the school students acknowledged that a future together can be enjoyed through unity and solidarity.

Towards a Common Future is the Commonwealth slogan for 2018, with meetings of Heads of Governments being held in London this year. Commonwealth Day had been celebrated in Malta in 2015.

The 53 countries forming part of this inter-governmental organisation had all been British Empire territories in the past, as had been Malta.

The organisation operates through inter-governmental agreement of its member states.

In London, the Head of the Commonwealth, Queen Elizabeth II, is to attend a multi-cultural service at Westminster Abbey. Also attending, in light of the organisation’s slogan, will be many persons from different faiths and cultures.

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, as Malta’s leader, and Mrs Michelle Muscat, have been invited to attend the event.
