Published on May 7, 2016 Email To Friend    Print Version


HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- Representatives of all 25 nations making up the Association of Caribbean States (ACS) will attend the seventh summit of the regional organization from June 2-4 at Havana's Conventions Center in Cuba.

According to the Cuban foreign ministry, seven associated nations and eight observer organizations, along with guests will also attend the summit.

The forum will adopt a declaration and a plan of action to consolidate the bloc´s renovation process that kicked off in 2013, the announcement explained.

ACS general secretary Alfonso Munera met with first deputy foreign minister Marcelino Medina in Havana last April 13 to discuss preparations for the summit.

They also considered the preparation of the documents to be considered at the event as well as the performance of the organization and Cuba's role while chairing its Council of Ministers until 2017.

The founding documents of the ACS were signed on July 24, 1994, in Cartagenas de Indias, Colombia, with the aim of promoting consultation, cooperation and joint actions by all Caribbean countries.
