Australia is an active member and supporter of the Commonwealth - an association of 53 countries from around the world. The Commonwealth seeks to promote principles of democracy, good governance, human rights and the rule of law among its members. Australia also values the role of the Commonwealth in advancing the interests of developing countries and small states in world affairs, including through the development of the Heavily-Indebted Poor Countries initiative. Australia hosted the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in 2002 and filled the position of Commonwealth Chairman-in-Office in 2003.
