QCOSTARICA – In Cuba, Costa Rica President Luis Guillermo Solis said joint work and integration will be essential to carry on with the objectives of development proposed for the coming years by the Association of Caribbean States (ACS) in order to achieve prosperity and sustainability in the countries of the area.

“Missing is more awareness and solidarity on the issue of migration flows,” voiced the president, of his experience while seeking from his Latin American neighbours to treat humanely the migrants seeking to cross the region to reach the United States.

Solis urged the ACS to show solidarity to fight the (human and drug) trafficking networks which, he said, “play with human lives and destroy them as one of the manifestations of organized crime”.

During the past seven months, Costa Rica has had to deal with crises caused by mass migration of Cubans traveling from South America to the United States by land.

Currently, Costa Rica faces the massive influx of undocumented seeking to cross the Central American isthmus on their way to North America.

The President acknowledged the relevance of promoting multi-destination as a tourist product, a key aspect in Caribbean economies.
