This report covers the work of the Commonwealth Secretariat from July 1993 to June 1995. It was presented to Commonwealth member countries at the 1995 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), which was held in Auckland, New Zealand. The theme for the 1995 CHOGM was 'Development and Good Governance: Local Action, Global Reach'.



Promoting the Special Interests of Small States

Small states, which make up more than half the Commonwealth's members, have special characteristics which give rise to particular developmental and security problems. Generally, these states are geographically small, often comprising a single island or group of islands, with populations of less than a million and sometimes as small as 8,000, as in the case of Nauru. Their resources can be meagre, their economies fragile, and their security vulnerable to outside forces.
