Deputy Prime Minister Cordel Hyde Represents Belize at G-77 and China Summit

Deputy Prime Minister, Cordel Hyde is in Cuba where he will be representing Belize at the G-77 and China Summit slated for Friday and Saturday.  According to the international press, the G77 and China is a group of developing and emerging countries representing 80 percent of the global population. The upcoming summit will reportedly promote a new economic world order, amid warnings of growing polarization.  Minister Hyde was captured online expressing thanks on behalf of Belize.

Secretary General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, arrived on the island today, and will be joined by some thirty heads of state and government officials from Africa, Asia and Latin America.  The meeting will conclude Saturday.  According to Cuba’s Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodriguez, a statement will be released at the close of the summit, underscoring “the right to development in an increasingly exclusive, unfair, unjust and plundering international order.  The G77 website indicates that the bloc was established by 77 countries of the global South in 1964 “to articulate and promote their collective economic interests and enhance their joint negotiating capacity,”.
