LA PAZ – The eastern city of Santa Cruz will host the 4th Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) Summit in 2017, Bolivian President Evo Morales announced Monday.

The president said at a press conference at which he was accompanied by Santa Cruz officials, that 12 nations will participate in the summit, along with another six countries attending as observers.

Morales formally presented Bolivia’s candidacy to host the 2017 meeting of the bloc in November at the end of the 3rd summit in Tehran.
