Cuba assumes Presidency of the Group of 77 plus China.

New York, January 12. Cuba assumed the Presidency of the Group of 77 plus China, the most representative and diverse group for consultation.

Upon assuming the Presidency, the Minister of Foreign Relations, Bruno Rodríguez, expressed: "I want to reiterate my gratitude for the support and trust placed in Cuba to lead the work of the G77 plus China in 2023. It will be a year of great challenges and complex processes that will demand decisive action from the countries of the South."

He also said that “It is already evident that the modest progress achieved in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda is at risk of being reversed. We are witnessing a more divided and selfish post-pandemic world.”

On the other hand, he emphasized that “Unity is the watchword in these difficult times. Only by building consensus can we move towards realizing our legitimate development aspirations”.
