«We believe in the force of the united Caribbean. We are convinced that we together will defeat the great challenges ahead», expressed the Commander in Chief Fidel Castro in the March for Freedom in Barbados, August 1st, 1998.

The summit will be the scenario to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between the Community of the Caribbean and Cuba, as well as to define the program for the development of the region, the integration and the commercial relations between our country and CARICOM.
