Wilfred Elrington was among the delegation of Foreign Ministers that participated in the 7th meeting for the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) in Quita Ecuador this week. A total of thirty-three member states met to continue their quest to enhance dialogue and coordination amongst themselves and to discuss cooperation initiatives with countries and regions outside the Americas. Chaired by the rotating presidency of Ecuador, the Minister's discussed a proposal for the region to develop cooperation "Agenda 2020" that seeks to establish a platform of strategic priorities and objectives common to all its members.
