It will be the first time OACPS will hold a meeting of heads of State and government with the status of international organization, after adoption of the agreement in 2019, in Nairobi, Kenya, the foreign minister stressed at a press conference.
According to Antonio, the Summit´s main issue: “3 Continents, 3 Oceans, 1 Common Destiny: Building a resilient and sustainable OACPS,” expresses the willingness to continue strengthening OACPS´ work as an international actor and its internal dynamics of cooperation.
OACPS is made up of 49 African states, 19 from the Caribbean, including Cuba, which has a special status, and 11 from the Pacific.
Antonio explained the meeting, slated for coming Friday, will be preceded by an OACPS Council of Ministers session which will take place on December 8.
In general, he added that there is a strong preparatory work, which, during this week, will contemplate several thematic forums on business, youth, women and the diaspora.
