From this Monday 16 to 20 April 2018, the United Kingdom will host the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) with leaders from members countries gathering in London and Windsor.

This year's meeting is likely to be the last for Queen Elizabeth II, the 91-year-old head of the Commonwealth, who is winding back on long-haul travel. The summit will focus on addressing common challenges across the Commonwealth for a more prosperous, secure and sustainable future. Ahead of the formal Heads of Government Meeting on Thursday and Friday, there will be three days of forums on Business, Women, People and Youth. During the meeting, the two sides are to discuss issues that are mutually important to both the countries.

According to a press statement from the Prime Minister's Office, Mr Lee will also have bilateral meetings with other Commonwealth leaders on the sidelines of CHOGM.

But some have pointed out that Britain's trade with Commonwealth nations now lags far behind that with its European neighbours.

"I want this to be the summit where the Commonwealth agrees to make that the goal for all our members - and begins to put in place the concrete measures that will allow it to become a reality", she will say.

During the Prime Minister's absence, Minister for Trade and Industry (Trade) Lim Hng Kiang will be Acting Prime Minister from Wednesday (Apr 18) to Saturday (Apr 21).
