CARICOM Cuba Leaders to talk trade in Havana.

Guyana.December 5, 2014. Economic and Trade Relations will be among the issues discussed at the Fifth Summit of the Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and Cuba which takes place in Havana, Cuba on Monday 8 December. The Summit will be preceded on Sunday by a meeting of the Foreign Ministers.

In accordance with the Havana Declaration of December 2002, the Summit is held every three years on the date that the leaders of Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago broke a diplomatic embargo and visited Cuba. That date December 8 has been designated CARICOM-Cuba Day.
 
Monday’s meeting will give the Leaders an opportunity to look at the present situation with the Trade and Economic Agreement which the two parties signed in 2000. They will benefit from the result of discussion held last October in Havana by the CARICOM-Cuba Joint Commission which sought ways of making the Agreement more effective.
 
The two sides will also discuss strengthening co-operation in multi-lateral fora. This assumes added importance in light of the on-going global negotiations for a Climate Change Agreement and the upcoming negotiations on the United Nations Post 2015 Development Agenda.
 
Chairman of CARICOM the Honourable Gaston Browne, Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, His Excellency Raul Castro Ruz, president of Cuba and His Excellency Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, Secretary-General of CARICOM will address Monday’s Opening Ceremony at the Place of the Revolution.

Excelente artículo. Resulta uno de los ámbitos fundamentales donde nuestros pueblos latinoamericanos y caribeños han de incrementar la cooperación: en el aspecto económico. Nuestras economías necesitan ser complementadas, utilizando y aprovechando las fortalezas de cada uno. En el caso cubano, la nueva Ley de Inversión Extranjera pone a disposición de todas oportunidades de negocios en carteras de interés común para todas las naciones caribeñas. A su vez, es necesaria la concertación y coordinación de todas las naciones insulares para diseñar estrategias de desarrollo y comunicacionales comunes para, como bloque monolítico, poder dialogar con nuestros socios comerciales extrarregionales.

I have great expectations about this Summit!!!!

this kind of meeting are very important cause they pursue an integration and cooperation among the countries that share not only their geographical area but their history and interest of improving in areas such as the economy

Trade is a key issues for both Cuba and the Caribbean nations. Economic relations must increase, Cuba has too much to offer to the Caribbean and the Caribbean certainly has many things to offer Cuba.
