The purpose of the Commonwealth Association is to promote and develop local government, business, education, culture and other activity between the people and organisations of Birmingham and counterparts within the 53 countries of the Commonwealth. We are keen to build on our existing relationship with Johannesburg, our sister city, as well as enjoying excellent connections with other Commonwealth countries through the Commonwealth Local Government Forum. The Birmingham Commonwealth Association has also become a branch of the Royal Commonwealth Society giving access to a broad range of partners across the Commonwealth.
The Birmingham Commonwealth Association aims to build on these connections to the benefit of Birmingham and its citizens. Our three subgroups reflect the interest of our members and comprise:
- Trade and business.
