HAVANA, Cuba, Mar 25 (acn) Ricardo Cabrisas, vice-president of the Cuban Council of Ministers,
met in Caracas with Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro to complete preparations for
the Summit of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas (ALBA).

 The Venezuelan Foreign Ministry informed that the ALBA Summit will be held on April 19 in Caracas, coinciding with the beginning of celebrations for the bicentennial of Venezuela’s independence, which took place in 1810.

The Venezuelan government announced that a civil-military parade will be carried out, with military delegations from countries in Africa, Asia and the Americas.

According to information published by the Cubadebate web site, Cabrisas and Maduro also examined the accords signed between Venezuela and Cuba.
The ALBA regional integration initiative, boosted by Cuba and Venezuela, is also made up by Nicaragua, Bolivia, Ecuador, Honduras, Dominica, Antigua and Barbuda, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Today, over 100 economic and social accords benefit millions of men, women and children of the ALBA member nations.
The regional body is based on the creation of mechanisms for integration that make good use of cooperative advantages between the different associated countries to compensate asymmetries between member states.

Relations between countries on equal terms and oriented to common benefit are a priority for ALBA.
The last summit of this community of nations was carried out in December in Havana.
