KINGSTON, Jamaica — President of the People's National Party (PNP), Dr Peter Phillips is today leading a high-level delegation to Havana, Cuba to attend the So Paulo forum, under the theme “Latin American and Caribbean Unity”.

More than 430 delegates from Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and Europe are participating in the 24th Meeting of the Sao Paulo Forum, a three-day meeting inaugurated today.

The PNP, in a release yesterday, said the forum, which brings together a grouping of progressive parties from the Caribbean and Latin American region, will discuss ideas relating to the social and economic advancement of the peoples of the region.

“Since its inception in 1990, the Forum has maintained its focus on the pursuit of an alternative development model underpinned by social justice. One of its key goals has been the debate about regional integration, with the clear objective of developing stronger bonds between the Latin American and Caribbean countries,” said the PNP.

Phillips is said to be accompanied by the party's General Secretary Julian Robinson, and Shadow minister of foreign affairs and foreign trade, Lisa Hanna.
