About Us

The Commonwealth is an association of sovereign nations which support each other and work together towards international goals. With their common heritage in language, culture, law, education and democratic traditions, among other things, Commonwealth countries are able to work together in an atmosphere of greater trust and understanding than generally prevails among nations. This website, developed by Nexus Strategic Partnerships, the leading publisher of Commonwealth affairs, is designed to ensure that the international community has a one-stop-shop guide to the governments, businesses, civil society, travel, statistics and personalities in the 53 member countries of the Commonwealth.
