Vulnerable populations a priority for CELAC
Published on July 25, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

CARACAS, Venezuela (ACN) -- Cuban Labour and Social Security minister Margarita Gonzalez said in Caracas that attention to the most vulnerable population sectors is a priority for the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), which is holding a ministerial meeting in Venezuela.

Addressing participants at the ministerial meeting for the eradication of hunger and poverty, the Cuban official said that Latin America is increasingly committed to its population.

Addressing the need to reduce inequalities in the region is also an objective of the ministerial meeting of the regional organization, currently chaired by Cuba.

Possible solutions to these realities must adapt to every country, said the Cuban official as she noted the economic, social and environmental challenges posed on Caribbean island nations, which require particular attention.

Any accord reached by the forum must be effectively followed in order to evaluate its impact on the future to achieve true development, said the Cuban representative.

Along with the meeting, a forum of 88 guests from different social movements is also underway, whose contribution will be added to the final document of the ministerial meeting, and submitted to the summit of heads of state and government of the Community.
