Paraguay's Foreign Minister Federico Gonzalez and his Andorran counterpart Maria Ubach Font debated virtually on the economic and social measures to be adopted in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic as part of the topic to be discussed in the Summit.
Gonzalez highlighted that governments must continue to "develop effective, comprehensive, human rights-based economic and social assistance policies that are supportive and sustainable, in order to mitigate the impact" of the coronavirus pandemic.
Innovation for sustainable development-Objective 2030 is the leading theme.
"After 11 years, Ministers of the Environment of Iberoamerica will gather to set a common Agenda. Plastic Pollution is one of the themes. We await an adequate ministerial declaration."
The First Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State and Government took place in Guadalajara, Mexico, in 1991 and laid the foundations for a forum that seeks to advance in a common political, economic and cultural process.
The meeting is coordinated by the Pro Tempore Secretariat constituted by the host country of the Summit together with the Ibero-American General Secretariat.
Andorra assumed the Pro Tempore Secretary at the end of the last Summit held in La Antigua, Guatemala, in 2018.
