During his visit to
Edinburgh, the Secretary-General officiated at the re-launching of the
Royal Commonwealth Society's (RCS) branch in Scotland. He said the
expansion of the RCS to Scotland is a good sign of the strengthening of
the Commonwealth's identity.
RCS Scotland is part of the Commonwealth's thriving civil society
community. He urged RCS Scotland to continue playing a role in promoting
the Commonwealth such as the RCS has done for Commonwealth Day. He
commended the RCS for disseminating information on the Commonwealth to
schools. It helped people to learn both about the Commonwealth's work,
and its shared values.
