Our vision is to see the Commonwealth clearly explained and understood by businesses, politicians, and importantly young people across all 53 nations. CX has three particular key areas of focus: Trade, Education & Defence.
The Commonwealth is a 53-nation club that consists of developed, developing, and emerging economies and spans all habitable continents. English is its lingua franca with Common Law and a commitment to democracy its notable features. We see it as a networked identity rather than hierarchical and political. It is an explicit recognition of a status for citizens to see one another: "not as countrymen, yet not foreigners.”
We began developing ideas for a Commonwealth Exchange in late 2012 and early 2013, looking to create revision of the Commonwealth that utilises the Commonwealth trade and educational advantage of operating in every time zone, 24/7, and in real-time.
As a digital platform it will link the Commonwealth in a free interaction of ideas, expertise and knowledge.
