    Dear President Nicolás Maduro Moros; Distinguished Heads of State and Government; Heads of delegations; Dear economic authorities of the countries of the Alliance and guests who accompany us: I want to start by thanking Brother President Nicolás Maduro Moros for convening this ALBA-TCP Economic Conference. There is an urgent need to exchange experiences and agree on positions to face together the effects of COVID-19, a pandemic that threatens to deepen significantly the multisectoral crisis that our societies are suffering, particularly in the economic sphere. No matter how much global damage is expected, no one disputes that the nations of the South will suffer the most from the consequences of the crisis, because the heavy burden of underdevelopment and indebtedness is added to the unilateral coercive measures to which some of us are subjected in the context of an unjust international order, which compromises the sustainable development of our peoples.
