The 23rd Commonwealth Foreign Affairs Ministers Meeting (CFAMM) will take place on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, on 21 September 2023 from 9AM-12PM New York time.

The meeting will be chaired by the Honourable Dr. Vincent Biruta, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Rwanda, as Rwanda is the CHOGM Chair-in-Office.

CFAMM will allow Commonwealth Foreign Affairs ministers to develop joint responses to shared challenges.

The 23rd CFAMM will provide an opportunity to update members on the delivery of mandates agreed at the 2022 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) and proceed to inform Ministers about preparations for the next CHOGM, taking place in Samoa in 2024.

CFAMM will aim to encourage Ministers to reflect on how Commonwealth countries and the Secretariat can work together in strengthening infrastructure, governance, and connections within the Commonwealth and thereby bolster resilience in adverse times.
