HM The Queen's CHOGM 2015 Opening Ceremony message


"Prime Minister Muscat, Secretary-General, Ladies and Gentlemen."


This is the second time in a decade that the flags of the Commonwealth have flown over Malta for the Heads of Government meeting. It gives me great pleasure to salute the Maltese Government and people for the resolute support which they have given to the Commonwealth and to this gathering 

Malta is, by the modern definition, one of the Commonwealth's Small States, a group which constitutes more than half of its membership. These sovereign countries have an equal voice in the councils of the Commonwealth, and none more so than Malta. With its long history of resilience and courage in the face of adversity, Malta is a reminder that a nation's size is no measure of the moral strength of its people or its willingness to play a full part in the global agenda.


Prime Minister of Malta Joseph Muscat addresses the CHOGM 2015, at the Opening Ceremony


"Your Majesty, Royal Highnesses, Excellencies, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen,


Merhba. Welcome to Sunny Malta.


Malta prides itself with having 300 days of sunshine every year. Unfortunately we picked one of the remaining 65 for the opening of the Commonwealth Summit.


One of the few things one cannot choose in life is one’s parents. Not only we cannot choose them, but we are their product, and most of the times, their choice. Parents are like the history of generations past. We have no say about the choices that have been made before our time, but we are their result.
