Britannia Mining CEO, Mr Kenneth Roberts was amongst the distinguished guests to attend Her Majesty’s (Queen Elizabeth II) Commonwealth reception in London, celebrating the “Family of Nations.”
“In the interest of forwarding relations between nations, it was an honor to commemorate the spirit of the Commonwealth in the presence of the Royal Family and many World dignitaries,” stated Kenneth Roberts, CEO of Britannia Mining. “Having been asked by the Malawi High Commission to attend the reception, Britannia was able to showcase the growing value of its presence in the country.”
Traditionally held ahead of the Commonwealth Summit, this year, the Buckingham Palace celebratory event became the host venue to High Commissioners and leading individuals from over 50 nations. The British monarch takes the Commonwealth very seriously. The Commonwealth is a remarkable organization, which after 60 years, remains a major force for change in the World today. The summit is more than a meeting of leaders. The Commonwealth plays an important social and political role as a major association of countries.
It contributes to trade negotiations, observes elections in member countries and provides guidance on administrative, judicial and regulatory reform. The Commonwealth is the only organization outside of the United Nations that brings together countries from around the globe and represents approximately one quarter of the World’s population.
Mr. Roberts continued, “As a stand for good governance and democracy, the Commonwealth’s principles are essential to the growth and protection a rapidly developing resource rich country like Malawi seeks. With Britannia’s continued interest in Malawi and the furthering of the Nthale iron ore project, I am pleased to know that our nations are aligned; at the very least, willing to seek the common ground needed for growth and sustainability.”
