Sri Lanka to host CHOGM in 2013
The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) at Trinidad and
Tobago yesterday, November 29 agreed unanimously for Sri Lanka to host
the CHOGM in 2013.
It was also decided that the next CHOGM in 2011 will be hosted by
Australia, and that Mauritius will host CHOGM in 2015.
Diplomatic sources said the unanimity on agreeing for Sri Lanka to
host CHOGM in 2013 was a major diplomatic achievement for Sri Lanka,
especially in the current post-conflict situation, and was a further
indication of the wider acceptance of the Sri Lankan success in the
fight against terrorism.
