“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.

Cuban and African migrants are encounter southern Nicaragua border closed, forcing Costa Rica to give humanitarian assistance to these groups.

In addition, during his sixth trip abroad this year, Solis emphasized, among ACS plans, the achievement of air and maritime connectivity, which has conspired against unity in the region, employment generation; increase the degree of technological innovation and exchange of best practices and higher levels of education. The President acknowledged the relevance of promoting multi-destination as a tourist product, a key aspect in Caribbean economies.
