During the XXI meeting of the Foreign Ministers of the Society of Latin American and Caribbean Community (CELAC), Panama’s Foreign Minister Erica Mouns signed a Strategic Association Agreement with alliances with Mexico and the Caribbean.
In a press release issued on its website this Sunday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Isthmus Nation (MIRE) promised that all these measures would strengthen the political and diplomatic dialogue in the geographical area.
“It is time to unite as a region, to create a common agenda, to overcome the effects of the Govt-19 epidemic and to support a sustainable development and to raise a single voice in support of a better society,” Moines said.
The head of Panamanian diplomacy thanked Mexico for the invitation and stressed that “this meeting should help lay the foundation for the sustainable future that our people demand.” These are issues that concern us all and we need to deal with them together. “
He stressed the need to work closely with the Panama Selak developing countries on key issues of mutual interest, such as the challenge posed by sustainable development and climate change.
Moines recalled that his country occupies the General Secretariat of the body that unites the Caribbean countries, thereby increasing the interest of the national government in strengthening relations with the region.
He also reiterated his desire to increase cooperation in areas of human development such as education, science, technology and culture.
Moines’ agenda included meetings with his colleagues from Trinidad and Tobago, Belize, Mexico, Colombia, Suriname, Guyana and Jamaica to promote trade investments with others.
