Caricom in Africa-South America alliance


BRIDGETOWN - A significant new front for trade, economic and political cooperation between Africa and South America, with the Caribbean Community's involvement, has been established.

It came at the recent "First Africa-South America Summit" in the Nigerian capital of Abuja that was preceded months earlier by preparatory meetings in Addis Ababa, Ethopia and Santiago, Chile.

Two Caribbean Community leaders were among some 60 Heads of State and Government from Africa and South America attending the summit earlier this month - Presidents Bharrat Jagdeo of Guyana and Runaldo Venetiaan of Suriname.
