Bolivian President Evo Morales called the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-People’s Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP) a mechanism of dignity for the continent.
In a message for the anniversary of the creation of this body, the president stressed on his Twitter account @evoespuebolo, that the ALBA marked a milestone in the release of the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), created by the United States.
He also recalled the main role of the Venezuelan leader, Hugo Chávez and the Commander in Chief of Cuba, Fidel Castro in founding the organization.
As part of the activities for the anniversary of ALBA, during this day the 16th Political Council of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America- Peoples’ Trade Treaty will be held in Havana, capital of Cuba.
The meeting of the ALBA-TCP will reinforce in this meeting its unity and capacity for consensus, leaving behind everything that divides and separates the region.
