The head of Cuban diplomacy explained on Twitter that the information was known prior to the 28th Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State and Government, which will open on Saturday in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic.
‘We are driven by the duty to promote inclusive and friendly cooperation for the benefit of our peoples,’ foreign minister tweeted.
According to the 2022 report from the Ibero-American General Secretariat, 1,168 South-South and Triangular Cooperation initiatives were presented and exchanged between all 22 Ibero-American countries and developing nations from other regions of the world.
The document identifies the strategies that Ibero-American countries promoted to make their cooperation more dynamic and to adapt it to a pandemic situation, which can also serve as a response tool to other phenomena such as climate change, the loss of biodiversity or growing food insecurity.
The data reflect a significant increase in cooperation in the area of health care, which accounts for 25.8 percent of exchanges, up 8.5 points from the 17.3 percent reported in 2018.
