In a changing world, it is more important than ever to preserve the values and principles that liberal democracies hold dear.
At a time when the liberal democratic world faces its greatest challenges, the leadership that once came from America and Europe has been distracted by issues of domestic governance and economics.
We believe the best means of protecting the values and principles we hold dear is to make common cause with those who are both willing and able to meet the commitments of a deeper partnership.
We also believe that the transformative potential of affirming stronger bonds among Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom can be further enhanced by reaching out to other Commonwealth jurisdictions that can meet the same economic, social and geopolitical commitments as these four nations.
We believe that Singapore presently has the potential to be an effective partner to these four Commonwealth nations.
To that end, we introduce the Commonwealth 5, or “C5” Network Initiative.
The C5 Network represents a collaborative, non-exclusive campaign that welcomes those who not only see the potential in this idea but are open to partnering in this endeavour.
We extend an invitation to those who wish to work together in common cause, where all can be innovators and trailblazers – no matter their station, circumstance, or contribution.
We also extend an invitation to those who have committed themselves to strengthen ties between Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. The success of each initiative contributes to the success of us all.
Join us as we take on the challenge of a bigger, more exciting world head on.
