Just over a decade ago, when Rwanda became the first majority French-speaking country to join the Commonwealth, Gabon began to consider that membership could be a possibility, says the gabonese head of state.

This opinion has been originally published on the Express’ website.

« As a small nation we sought to broaden our country’s horizons for our citizens through closer association with nations of the English-speaking world. We saw the opportunities the Commonwealth could bring for increased trade, greater investment, enhanced educational advancement for our young people, and much more.
