CARICOM AND SICA MUST COME TOGETHER TO FACE GLOBAL CHALLENGES
 

 

(CARICOM Secretariat, Turkeyen, Greater Georgetown, Guyana) Countries of the Central American Integration System (SICA) and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) have a historic need to come together to face the global challenges that stem from a more complex and competitive environment.

This was the view of President of El Salvador, His Excellency Mauricio Funes, at the Opening Ceremony of the Third CARICOM-SICA Summit which he is hosting in San Salvador. President Funes, who is Pro-Tempore Chairman of SICA, appealed for both Regions to speak as one voice in world fora.

“Those of us with limited resources to respond to the challenges of such an environment, know the difficulties that arise when trying to face them alone,” he added. President Funes said that at this time, integration was an urgent need not a political action.

He called for the adoption of actions and policies to deepen the relationship between the two Regions based on the Declaration adopted at the Second CARICOM-SICA Summit held in Belize in 2007.
