image of Development and Democracy

This report of the Commonwealth Secretary-General covers the period 1 July 2001 to 30 June 2003. It describes the work of the Commonwealth association of 54 member countries, and more specifically the activities and achievements of the Commonwealth Secretariat, the association's principal intergovernmental organisation. The Foreword by Commonwealth Secretary-General Don McKinnon presents a personal view of the progress of the Commonwealth over that period. The report is presented to Commonwealth Heads of Government before their biennial summit.

Investing in development

For Commonwealth countries that lack capacity to produce internationally competitive goods and services or whose capacity to do so is not recognised, the fruits of globalisation stay tantalisingly out of reach. Investment, both domestic and foreign, is what they need, but that is easier said than done. The Commonwealth seeks to promote such investment, as well as debt relief.
