Jaua Encourages Productive Economic Zone in Jamaica

Press Releases — April 15, 2014

The Minister of Popular Power for Foreign Affairs, Elias Jaua, confirmed yesterday that the main objective of his visit to the Republic of Jamaica is to strengthen the momentum of complementary economic zone that allows closer ties of cooperation between Caribbean countries, reported the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry through a press release.

“We’ve come to realise that what Commander Chávez devised in 2002, which was implemented by President Nicolas Maduro, is the creation of an economic zone among Petrocaribe member countries,” said Jaua.

Petrocaribe comprises 18 countries : Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Belize, Cuba, Dominica, Granada, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Venezuela. This energetic group promotes social and economic development and has guiding principles of unity, solidarity, cooperation, and complementarity.

Meanwhile, the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA) comprises Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Dominica, Ecuador, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Antigua and Barbuda.

Both agencies are part of the integration that was driven by the then leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chávez.


Moreover, Jaua reiterated that the foreign ministers of the Union of South American Nations (Unasur) began to arrive last night in Venezuela to participate in the National Peace Conference, sponsored by the President of the Republic, Nicolas Maduro, after controlling the violence and right-wing groups that have left 39 people dead.

“Eight foreign ministers of our South American neighbours will continue the work President Nicolas Maduro has asked them to support”, he said.
