Foreign Affairs Minister, E.P Chet Greene, is traveling to Cuba today for a
meeting of the G-77 countries that opens in Havana on Friday which is being held
under the theme On Current Development Challenges: The Role of Science,
Technology and Innovation.
The Group of 77 (G-77) was established on 15 June 1964 by seventy-seven
developing countries signatories of the “Joint Declaration of the Seventy-Seven
Developing Countries,” issued at the end of the first session of the United Nations
Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in Geneva.
Beginning with the first “Ministerial Meeting of the Group of 77 in Algiers
(Algeria) from 10 – 25 October 1967, which adopted the Charter of Algiers”, a
permanent institutional structure gradually developed, which led to the creation of
Chapters of the Group of 77 with Liaison offices in Geneva (UNCTAD) Nairobi,
Nairobi (UNEP), Paris, Rome Vienna and the group of 24 (G-
24)(UNESCO), Rome (FAO/IFAD), Vienna (UNIDO), and the Group of 24 (G-
24) in Washington, D.C. (IMF and World Bank).
FM Greene will bring greetings on behalf of Antigua, and he is expected to touch
on several of the subjects that are of interest to Antigua and Barbuda during his
remarks at the conference on Friday.
