16th Summit of ALBA Heads of State and Government held in Havana

Havana, December 14 (RHC)-- The 16th Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples' of Our America -- People's Trade Agreement (ALBA-TCP) is being held in the Cuban capital on Friday.

This year's summit pays homage to the group’s founders, Fidel Castro and Hugo Chávez, “two visionary brothers,” according to David Choquehuanca, ALBA-TCP secretary general.

The meeting is taking place on this date to commemorate the bloc’s foundation back in 2004 by these two Latin American leaders.

Choquehuanca noted that ALBA-TCP is important at a time when “dark forces long for the return of neocolonialism, because division came to our continent with colonialism, along with racism, the culture of division and war.”
