HRH Prince Imran said: “I’m delighted that following on from the great success of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, 2015 will see the entire Commonwealth focus on the needs and contributions of its younger citizens. This is particularly appropriate for the CGF because one year from today we will be celebrating the fifth Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa.
Kamalesh Sharma, Commonwealth Secretary-General said: “A Young Commonwealth’ recognises that the capacity, contribution and potential of young people is vital, particularly in 2015 when the world will define a new global development framework.
“The Commonwealth is a family of dynamic countries at the forefront of innovation, growth and contributing global value. As a diverse and increasingly connected global network, we bring fresh perspectives and new ideas. We will always remain a contemporary and young Commonwealth.”
The 5^th Commonwealth Youth Games take place from 5^th- 11^th September 2015 on the beautiful island of Samoa in the South Pacific. www.samoacyg2015.com
