ACS reinforces collaboration with SICA

The Secretariat of the Association of Caribbean States (ACS) held a virtual meeting with the General Secretariat of the Central American Integration System (SICA), in which the Secretary General and representatives of each ACS Directorate presented to SICA the initiatives for the different areas of work of the association, with the objective of strengthening collaboration between the two organisations. The projects discussed focus on disaster risk reduction through geospatial information and early warning systems, enhancing resilient tourism, providing tools for the development of the creative industry, supporting the agricultural industry and promoting PPPs to address transport issues in the region. SICA expressed interest in participating in identifying a joint work plan with the ACS to reduce duplication of efforts and the Secretaries General of both organisations will meet in Argentina, in the framework of the next forum of the Community of Latin American States (CELAC).
