South Africa observes Commonwealth Day

South Africa joins the other Commonwealth member states in marking Commonwealth Day today 14 March 2022, under the theme: “Delivering a Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming.”

The Commonwealth, which represents 54 countries on six different continents, are joined in pursuing their common goals to promote a fairer, prosperous, sustainable, and secure future, in line with the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development.

South Africa cooperates with the Commonwealth in the fields of economic development, trade and investment, education and skills development, women and youth empowerment, technology and innovation, as well as the blue economy.

“South Africa will continue to work closely with the Commonwealth, to build a common and inclusive future, especially in the aftermath of COVID-19. On Commonwealth Day, South Africa again renews its pledge to uphold and serve the values and fellowship of the Commonwealth,” said Minister Pandor.
