Over one hundred Heads of State/Government, Foreign Ministers and other Heads

of Delegation attending the G77 meeting in Havana that was held in Havana, Cuba,

last Friday and Saturday.

Foreign Affairs Minister, E.P Chet Greene led Antigua and Barbuda’s delegation

to the meeting that discussed matters of interest to these states. In the post meeting

Declaration, the Group expressed concern over the use of technology.

The declaration also referenced the current unfair state of the world economic

order. “We note with deep concern that the major challenges generated by the

current unfair international economic order for developing countries have reached

their most acute expression in current times due, inter alia, to the persistent

negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, even though the Public Health

Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) for COVID-19 has been lifted by the

WHO, it stated.

The meeting also called for changes to the world financial system. “We stress the

urgent need for a comprehensive reform of the international financial architecture

and a more inclusive and coordinated approach to global financial governance,

with greater emphasis on cooperation among countries, including through

increasing the representation of developing countries in global decision and policy-

making bodies which will contribute to enhance the capacities of developing

countries to access and develop science, technology and innovation,” the

declaration declared.

Greene was accompanied on the trip by Permanent Secretary, Anthony Liverpool

and Antigua and Barbuda’s Ambassador to Cuba, George Goodwin.
