Trinidad and Tobago Renames CHOGM Summit

Senior Coordinator for CHOGM 2009, Sharifa Ali Abdullah, announced that a decision has been taken to change the name of the CHOGM (Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting) to be hosted in Port of Spain in November, to "Summit of the Commonwealth".

As we surmised after the 2005 CHOGM summit in Valletta, we expect the first day of the upcoming CHOGM, Friday, November 27, 2009, to be declared a one-off public holiday in Trinidad and Tobago (2005-11-29 and 2009-01-04), as was the case earlier this month for the Fifth Summit of the Americas (2009-04-07).
