Havana - Cuba will conclude its term at the helm of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) amid the Covid-19 pandemic, which requires greater regional cooperation, official sources indicated on Wednesday.
Given the current epidemiological situation, greater support is needed among Latin American and Caribbean nations, noted Carlos Fidel Martin, director of International Economic Organizations of the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment (MINCEX).
Speaking to the Cubadebate website regarding the upcoming delivery to Costa Rica of the pro tempore presidency of the regional body, the Cuban official highlighted ECLAC's help to the progress of the Cuban vaccine against Covid-19.
