Cuban President travels to Celac Summit

Havana, Feb 29 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel announced today that he is traveling to St. Vincent and the Grenadines to attend the 8th Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC).

On the social network X, the Head of State described as successful the work carried out by St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the presidency of the bloc.

We are still committed to moving forward together towards the integration of our countries. Unity in diversity is the key, Díaz-Canel stressed on the platform.

The summit will take place tomorrow, March 1, at the Sandals resort in Buccament Bay and at its opening, the host Minister of Foreign Affairs, Keisal M. Peters, will present a report on the management of St. Vincent and the Grenadines at the head of the organization.

The inauguration will also be addressed by the Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and temporary president of Celac, Ralph Gonsalves, and the bloc’s national coordinator, Douglas Slater.

The meeting will focus on pressing issues in the region, including food security, health, climate change and peacekeeping in search of consensus and possible solutions.

Celac, made up of 33 countries, is a regional intergovernmental mechanism that emerged in December 2011 to promote unity and political, economic, social and cultural integration.

With the event, St. Vincent and the Grenadines will end its mandate at the head of the bloc, thus becoming the first member of the Caribbean Community to assume such responsibility.
