Cuba hosts debate on international economic order

Havana, Apr 29 (Prensa Latina) Worldwide Politicians, academics, and experts will share the Cuban venue to analyze global imbalances and the need for a New International Economic Order (NIEO).

Progressive International and the National Association of Economists and Accountants of Cuba convened the Congress, the second of its kind in Havana after the one held in January 2023 sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba (MINREX).

The National Capitol of Cuba will make one of its chambers available for the event, which will take place from April 29th to 30th, on the eve of the 50th anniversary of the approval by the United Nations General Assembly of the declaration and program of action on the establishment of the NIEO, which in turn constituted a milestone in the struggle of the countries of the South for international economic justice and their development, MINREX recalled on its website.

According to the Foreign Ministry, the forum will promote dialogue around the problems that hinder development and world peace, due to an unbalanced international economic, political, scientific-technological, and military order with hegemonic preponderances.

In its final declaration, the first Congress noted in January 2023 that the current vision of the NIEO can only be realized through collective action from the South and the formation of new and alternative institutions to share critical technology, address sovereign debt, boost financing development and face future pandemics together.
