COMMONWEALTH heads of government will next week meet at the secretariat at Marlborough House, London, to discuss reform in the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

The two-day meeting that begins on Monday aims at repositioning the two international institutions, said a statement from the Commonwealth.

Among the leaders slated to attend the mini-summit are President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda, UK prime minister Gordon Brown, Malaysian deputy premier Najib Tun Razak and Ghanaian vice-president Alhaji Aliu Mahama.

Others are Bharrat Jagdeo (Guyana), Maumoon Gayoom (Maldives), prime minister Dr Navinchandra Ramgoolam (Mauritius), Mahinda Rajapaksa (Sri Lanka) and Jakaya Kikwete (Tanzania).

“International institutions must support an inclusive and comprehensive globalisation, which benefits the entire global community,” said Commonwealth Secretary General Kamalesh Sharma.

The summit, to be chaired by Gordon Brown, is the first step in implementing the decisions of the November 2007 CHOGM that was held in Kampala, Uganda.
