    Sri Lanka to host Commonwealth Summit in 2013

    The 22nd Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Perth ended today with leaders of 54 nations reaffirming their commitment to the values and principles of the Commonwealth and agreeing to a series of actions to ensure the Commonwealth's effectiveness in responding to contemporary global challenges and to build resilient societies and economies.

    The summit held from October 28-30 under the theme 'Building National Resilience, Building Global Resilience' ended Sunday afternoon with the closing remarks from the Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, with the heads reaffirming their decision to meet next in Sri Lanka in 2013.

    Addressing the conclusion ceremony, President Rajapaksa invited the Commonwealth heads of States to come to Sri Lanka for the 2013 CHOGM briefing the meeting on the social, cultural historical and political background in Sri Lanka and thanked the Australian Prime minister for organizing a grand commonwealth meeting.

    A documentary on Sri Lanka's natural beauty was also shown at the closing ceremony to enlighten the Commonwealth representatives.
