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.

Speaking up for small states

Small states are a big story for the Commonwealth, and are integral to the association's identity as a proudly diverse group of nations. More than half the Commonwealth's membership-32 of 54 member countries-are small states, mostly with populations of less than 1.5 million.
