The Boilivarian Alliance for the People’s of Our America-Peoples Trade Agreement (ALBA-TCP) reaches its 10th anniversary December 14, and will commemorate the date during the bloc’s XIII Summit, in Havana, amidst discussion to continue efforts to develop regional integration.

Cuba, Venezuela, Antigua and Barbuda, Bolivia, Dominica, Ecuador, Nicaragua, St. Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines are current members of the alliance, established in 2004 at the initiative of revolutionary leaders Fidel Castro and Hugo Chávez.

During the Summit, which will take place in the Cuban capital’s Palacio de la Revolución, approval of St. Kitts and Nevis, as well as Grenada, as new members is expected, according to albatcp.cubaminrex.cu.

During its first decade, ALBA-TCP has achieved important accomplishments, including a literacy program which has benefited some 3.5 million people, and mobilizing emergency solidarity in Haiti, after the 2010 earthquake, and more recently, to combat the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.
