    Cuba to Assume the Pro Tempore Presidency of the G77 + China

    On Thursday, Cuba will assume the pro tempore Presidency of the Group of 77 + China, which is a coalition of 134 developing countries, designed to create an enhanced joint negotiating capacity in the United Nations.


    Cuba Strengthens Relations With 9 Countries

    The delivery of the presidency will take place in a virtual ceremony in which Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, the United Nations Secretary Antonio Guterres, UN General Assembly President Csaba Korosi, and Pakistani Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will be present.

    Cuba's Foreign Affairs Minister Bruno Rodriguez pointed out that his country will promote international cooperation through the G77 presidency to accelerate the post-pandemic economic recovery of developing countries.

    He also mentioned that Cuban foreign policy will seek to make South-South cooperation more effective and will promote North-South cooperation so that industrialized countries assume their historical responsibilities.

    Within the G77, Cuba will encourage the consolidation of common positions, the strengthening of the group's unity and participation in the most important multilateral processes in progress.

    The Cuban Foreign Ministry will also bet on the consolidation of a rules-based, transparent, non-discriminatory, open and inclusive multilateral trade system. The Cuban agenda also includes the defense of universal access to quality education and health.

    Founded by the Non-Aligned Movement in 1964, the G77 currently includes 134 countries, a figure that represents 75 percent of the United Nations membership and 80 percent of the world's population.
