On Friday, Prince Mohamed Bolkiah, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Brunei, delivered a speech highlighting FEALAC’s importance in establishing new directions for bilateral and multilateral cooperation across the world.

Gonzalez, said the meeting was an opportunity to seek political positioning in the environment of the FEALAC member nations.

The region, covered by FEALAC, is important as it makes up a third of the world’s area, 40 per cent of the world’s population, 33 percent of the volume of the world’s trade and 35 per cent of the world’s Gross Domestic Product.

“For Costa Rica, the ministerial meeting is of particular importance as we identify with the bi-regional objectives and want them to come to fruition,” President Solis said.
