By Aaron Humes: On January 28, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belize Eamon Courtenay and Colombian counterpart Marta Lucía Ramírez co-chaired the second Colombia-CARICOM Ministerial Summit in Barranquilla, Colombia.

The high-level meeting discussed the regional grouping’s relations with the South American state including cooperation, trade, and investment.

The Ministers adopted a 28-point declaration of outcomes of the summit which committed, among other things, to continuing the Colombia-CARICOM Ministerial Summit “as the optimal space for dialogue and the strengthening of political, economic, cultural, social and cooperation ties.”

Other aspects of the declaration include reiterating the regional stance on vaccine equality and the acceptance and commendation of Colombia’s 1-million-dollar donation to the Pan American Health Organization to support vaccination programs in CARICOM member countries.

In celebration of the 28th anniversary of the establishment of official relations between CARICOM and Colombia, the grouping recognized the signing of Partial Scope Agreement No. 31 on trade and economic and technical cooperation, signed on July 24, 1994, within the framework of article 25 of the Latin American Integration Association (ALADI), in Cartagena, and renewing its value by adaptation to current global trends and expansion by invitation to the Bahamas, Haiti, and Suriname to explore their incorporation into the PSA.

Other agreements were concluded on agriculture, crime, defense and security, climate change, and related issues.
