OAS Secretary General Calls for Greater Integration and Expanding Domestic Markets at the Opening of CELAC Summit

Noting that the CELAC Summit represents an opportunity for Latin America and the Caribbean to reach common positions to meet the challenge of achieving higher growth under the new conditions of the global economy, and at the same time "a fairer distribution of the fruits of that growth," the OAS Secretary General recalled that the next Summit of the Americas, to be held in Panama in April, will have as its central themes "prosperity and inequality." Alluding to the presence of Cuba in the next hemispheric meeting in Panama, and emphasizing the need for these issues to be discussed by all the governments in the region, he said the meeting "will be an historic event which will be attended, for the first time, by all the Heads of State and Government of the 35 independent States of the Americas.”
