Belize Foreign Affairs Minister Wilfred “Sedi” Elrington is due to lead a delegation of country officials which will attend a series of meetings being convened by the Association of Caribbean States (ACS) in Mexico next week.

Mexico’s president Enrique Peña Nieto will open the VI Summit of Heads of State and/or Governments of the Association of Caribbean States, slated for Wednesday, April 30, 2014, at the Convention Centre in Mérida.

Alexis Rosado, Chief Executive Officer in the Belize Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told Amandala that the event will be attended by representatives from Caribbean and Central American countries, as well as representatives from Columbia and Venezuela.

The summit will feature a presentation of the new initiatives for the benefit of the Caribbean, offered by the Government of Mexico. There will also be a dialogue on the said initiatives.

The leaders will also evaluate the Plan of Action of Pétion Ville, which includes the establishment of a sustainable tourism zone for the Greater Caribbean and a program for uniting the Caribbean by air and sea.

The summit to be hosted by Mexico will be preceded by two meetings: The Preparatory Meeting of the 7th Extraordinary Meeting of the Ministerial Council of the Association of Caribbean States to be held at Hotel Fiesta Americana, Mérida on Monday, April 28; and the 7th Extraordinary Meeting to be held at Fiesta Americana Hotel, Mérida, on Tuesday, April 29.
