Africa - South America Summit to take place in Caracas

The Second South America – Africa Summit will be held in Caracas in the second half of the year.  President Hugo Chávez confirmed this on Monday during a speech from the People’s Balcony of Miraflores Palace in front of a large crowd that gathered to commemorate the events of April 13th, 2002.

“We have confirmed the summit in Caracas for the second half of the year; it will be very important, [featuring] presidents, heads of state and of government of countries of Africa with countries of South America.  This is the second time a meeting of these proportions is being held,” the President announced.

“We must remember that our roots have a deep identity with Africa and with presidents of countries that are undergoing an intense struggle against imperialism,” he highlighted.

On March 3rd of last year, working groups were established in the Hotel Alba Caracas to set the groundwork for the summit in areas related to trade, investment, tourism, education and culture.  The First South America – Africa Summit was held in Abuja, Nigeria on November 30th, 2006.
