The challenges and perspectives of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-People’s Trade Treaty (ALA-TCP) in 2021 were part of the issues discussed on Wednesday at a meeting between the Vice-minister for Multilateral Affairs, Daniela Rodríguez, and the ALBA-TCP Executive Secretary Sacha Llorenti Soliz.

At the meeting, held in the headquarters of the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry, Rodríguez and Llorenti also discussed the economic consequences and impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic on the people, and how ALBA-TCP worked to guarantee the security and wellbeing of its member countries.

Likewise, Vice-minister Rodríguez recalled the interest and proposal of President Nicolás Maduro and Foreign Minister Jorge Arreza to boost ALBA-TCP for the defense of the interests of our peoples and the promotion of the Latin American and Caribbean unity.

“We have a great responsibility to move forward with the ‘2021 Post-pandemic Working Plan’ adopted at the ALBA-TCP Summit of Heads of State and Government on December 14, 2020. This plan will be an important roadmap to protect the Latin American and Caribbean social wellbeing and unity,” said Rodríguez.

Furthermore, the Venezuelan diplomat highlighted the importance of strengthening the ALBA-TCP as a forum for concertation in the global debate. “We are heading in that direction, always carrying the Bolivarian sword and raising our ideals of brotherhood, justice, equality and unity.”
