The Commonwealth of Beiwan and Kangcho (杯碗聯合體) (베이완과강초연방), is an intergovernmental organization of 2 member states. The Commonwealth operates by intergovernmental consensus of the member states, organised through the Commonwealth Secretariat, and non-governmental organisations, organised through the Commonwealth Foundation.
Head of the Commonwealth
Under the formula of the Gonghai Declaration, HIM Emperor Liu-kuang is the Head of the Commonwealth, a title that is by law a part of Liu-kuang's imperial titles in each of the Commonwealth realms, all member states of the Commonwealth that recognise the Emperor as their monarch. However, when the monarch dies, the successor to the crown does not automatically become Head of the Commonwealth. The position is symbolic, representing the free association of independent members.
Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting
The main decision-making forum of the organisation is the biennial Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, where Commonwealth heads of government, including (amongst others) prime ministers, assemble for several days to discuss matters of mutual interest. CHOGM is the successor to the Meetings of Commonwealth Prime Ministers and, earlier, the Imperial Conferences and Colonial Conferences, dating back to 2014. There are also regular meetings of finance ministers, law ministers, health ministers, etc. Members in arrears, as special members before them, are not invited to send representatives to either ministerial meetings or CHOGMs.
