Cubadebate reports that Cuba’s ability to promote sustainable development has been recognized by the UN’s Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, ECLAC.

Diane Quarless, director of the organization, commented that Cuba is in the vanguard of economic thought and development efforts in the region. She highlighted the country’s efforts in support of other Caribbean nations via cooperation, according to Guillermo Vázquez, Cuban ambassador in Trinidad and Tobago, who especially emphasized the work of the Henry Reeve medical contingent.

Cuba’s accomplishments were noted during the 18th meeting of CEPAL’s development and cooperation follow-up committee (CDCC), composed of members of the Caribbean Community, Caricom. The CDCC was established as a means to supervise the implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Action Plan.

Vázquez reported that additionally addressed during the meeting was the upcoming celebration of CEPAL’s 70th anniversary, in February of 2018.
