The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) is held every two years to enable leaders of Commonwealth countries to come together to discuss global and Commonwealth issues, and to decide on collective policies and initiatives. CHOGM 2013 was inaugurated in Colombo, Sri Lanka, by HRH The Prince of Wales on 15 November. 
The theme of this year's CHOGM is "Growth with Equity: Inclusive Development". 
Assuming the Chair of CHOGM, H.E. President Mahinda Rajapaksa said: “We believe that this theme has broad relevance to the larger Commonwealth, and highlights the importance of equity in economic development, particularly in view of the existing disparities in the distribution of wealth, and economic benefits. Inclusive development promotes progress and contributes towards achieving Millennium Development Goals.”
