Mr. President:

#INFORMATICA 2018 to be held in Havana.

Havana, February 5, 2018. For a sustainable development, this will be the main slogan of the XVII edition of Informática 2018 International Convention and Fair, which will be held from March 19th to 23rd, 2018. This event will take place at the Palacio de Convenciones (Havana Conventions Center) and PABEXPO fairgrounds, in Havana.

The Ministry of Communications and the Cuban Informatics Union announce that this meeting will be serving the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), focused on satisfying the needs of the Cuban society. 


The member countries of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America - Peoples’ Trade Treaty (#ALBA-TCP) reject the latest sanctions announced by the European Union. These sanctions affect the diplomatic efforts that have been made recently to find the path of dialog and peace among Venezuelans.

ALBA-TCP urges the international community to refrain from exercising coercion in any form against the political independence and territorial integrity of Venezuela. These practices are incompatible with the principles of international law and the Charter of the United Nations.
