Official Languages: English, French, Spanish. So that everything can be like this... What are these guys up to? hmmmmm... What is the Commonwealth of Nations? The Commonwealth of Nations is a voluntary association of the United Kingdom and its dependencies, including British colonies (that no longer exist) which are now sovereign nations! These independent countries have maintained their British historical ties and links to form a great association that fights world issues known as the Commonwealth of Nations. Jeffrey's Part!

The Commonwealth of Nations helps to bring peace to its member nations. They fight for their fellow member countries' rights. THAT LAST SENTENCE RHYMED Membership Countries After the Presentation try our Jeopardy Challenge OECD was originally and officially established on the 30th of September year 1961. But the idea was generally made one year before. During, 1960 an organization named OECC decided to create another organization named OECD and then the organization was officially developed one year after. Then, countries such as Japan contributed and joined the organization at 1964 and others which brought the great OECD today! jeopardylabs.com/play/international-organizations11 Click Here There are 54 member countries in the

Click it..if you dare! Logo Establishment The Commonwealth of Nations was established in December of 1931, under the Statute of Westminster. Translation: basically the organization was a "division" from OECC (organization with similar purpose) and was officially established during September of 1961 Easier eh! As for the reason for establishment: it is basically the same as the purpose, developing policies that would help out people around the world who need help with economic problems (as mentioned like OECC) Creepy! Reasons for establishment:
- In the process of decolonization from the British Empire, independent
nations began to form, and the British Empire soon desired for the independent countries to form an organization which were previously a part of the British Empire.
- Lord Rosebery from Australia soon developed a name for this organization of countries: "The Commonwealth of Nations" Location of Headquarters The Commonwealth of Nations headquarters are located in Marlborough house, a beautiful building in central London, England LORD ROSEBERY! Marlborough House FUN FACTS! Fun Facts Time!!! At last... Yipee!!! OCED is celebrating their 50th year anniversary this year congratulations! OCED's budget for last year was 347 million EURs!!!
