CARICOM-Cuba foreign ministers meet in Grenada on Friday
Published on September 6, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

ST GEORGE'S, Grenada (GIS) -- The fourth meeting of ministers of foreign affairs of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and Cuba will take place in Grenada on Friday.

The one day meeting will be held on Calivigny Island, and the ministers are expected to review the relations and technical cooperation between CARICOM and Cuba in a range of areas including trade, health, culture education and natural disasters.

They will also discuss future cooperation on regional and international matters of common concern.

Both sides are expected to discuss and exchange views on: the issue of non-communicable diseases and the challenge they pose to the welfare of the people of the Caribbean; the post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda, challenges posed by disabilities, climate change and natural disasters, and, cooperation within the wider region through participation in the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC).

This was launched in Venezuela in 2011, and offers an avenue for widening the integration and political coordination effort to include Latin America.

The CARICOM-Cuba foreign ministers meeting was instituted to assess relations between the two, and increase cooperation efforts within the context of advancing the region’s integrative efforts. The first three meetings were held in Havana (2004), St Vincent (2007), and, Havana (2010)
