Regional Cooperation, Key Point at the Tuxtla Mechanism Summit

SAN JOSE – Costa Rican Deputy Foreign Minister Alejandro Solano said that regional cooperation on environmental issues, infrastructure, science, healthcare, energy and security will be the linchpin of the 16th Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Tuxtla Mechanism for Dialogue and Coordination 2017, which started on Tuesday.

Solano said at a San Jose press conference that, although the immigration issue is not included on the summit agenda, it will be discussed “possibly during the exchanges among the heads of state.”

The Mechanism “is a process with a strong content of cooperation and what is intended by it is to provide (the process) with a human face ... The issue of the new geopolitical realities will be discussed,” albeit at a private meeting of the heads of state, Solano said after the end of the meeting of the Mesoamerica Project Executive Commission.

The deputy foreign minister, on the subject of the environment, said that the countries will also discuss enhancing their abilities in the areas of public transportation, using clean energy and disseminating research and innovation on sustainable energy.

Solano said that at the Executive Commission meeting the participants approved roadmaps regarding the Mesoamerica Project, as well as a series of actions to implement over the next two years before the next summit.

The Mesoamerica Project is the executing agency for the economic and social projects of the Tuxtla Mechanism for Dialogue and Coordination, which includes Mexico, Colombia, the Dominican Republic and the Central American countries.

The 16th meeting of the Executive Commission opened Tuesday in Costa Rica, and later a meeting will be held including the region’s foreign ministers.
