LONDON: Pakistan on Thursday elected to the executive and grants committees of the Commonwealth Foundation (CF) during the annual meeting of the board of governors.

The Executive Committee is an important body of the foundation mandated to oversee all matters related to finance, personnel and administration; make policy recommendations; and review and finalise plans and budgets for presentation to the board. The Grants Committee supervises issuance of grants by the CF to civil society organisations for their various projects and programmes.

The foundation is one of the three intergovernmental organisations of the Commonwealth and helps civil society organisations promote democracy, development and cultural understanding across member states.
