President Nicolás Maduro participates in the 19th Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Peoples’ Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP), held in Venezuela on the commemoration of the Bicentennial of the Battle of Carabobo.

The meeting will serve to discuss the regional situation and the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, and to strengthen the integration of the peoples of Our America.

“On June 24, on the commemoration of the Battle of Carabobo, the 19th ALBA-TCP Summit of Heads of State and Government will be held. Ours is an alliance for life and independence,” stressed Executive Secretary Sacha Llorenti.

At the 18th ALBA-TCP Summit, held virtually on December 14, 2020, the member countries reaffirmed their desire for integration, and approved a Post-pandemic Working Plan and the reactivation of ALBA-TCP councils to move forward with a concrete agenda of actions.

Likewise, the heads of State and Government proposed the creation of a Bank of Vaccines to ensure immunization of the region’s people against COVID-19 as a mechanism to mitigate the monopoly exercised by a reduced group of governments.

ALBA-TCP aims at the consolidation of fraternal relations with the Latin American and Caribbean people on the basis of independence, sovereignty and self-determination.
