“We are working to further strengthen our alliance and make a qualitative leap towards unity,” said the executive secretary, “in a landscape in which the United States, allied with regional oligarchies, is generating a boycott of integration efforts.”

During the 18th ALBA-TCP Summit, held virtually on December 14, 2020, ALBA-TCP ratified its commitment to strengthening the regional body.
