The 6th International Cooperation Conference of the Association of Caribbean States (ACS) is concluding this Friday in Havana, following the analysis of two years of work to address climate change and regional development.
According to its Secretary General Rodolfo Sabonge, the importance of the two-day meeting held in the halls of the Packard Hotel lies in its content: the work carried out by the membership after the approval of the Action Plan and the projects that emanate from it.
Accordingly, this 6th Conference will allow to evaluate projects aimed at mitigating the effects of climate change, seeking ways of economic development through better intra-regional trade integration and improving connectivity, transportation and logistics, he said.
In addition, he said, the aim is to “promote sustainable tourism so that it can take off and improve what we already have.
The Secretary General especially acknowledged the role played by Cuba as “godmother” of the ACS and said that “one of the reasons why we are holding the event here is that this country has the largest number of international representations in the region, more than 120”.
