The Ecuadorian president, Lenin Moreno, will travel to Guatemala on November 14 to participate in the Ibero-American Summit of Antigua, a trip that will only be accompanied by three senior officials.
According to the decree signed today, the president will be accompanied by his wife Rocío González, also president of the Interinstitutional Committee of the Plan for a Whole Life, by the technical secretary of that Plan, Isabel Maldonado, and by the Foreign Minister, José Valencia.
The minister told Efe that at this summit, dedicated to inclusion and progress, Ecuador wants to enhance "inclusion" in its broadest sense, so that it "addresses the economic, social and environmental issues of migration and disability", the latter of particular importance for President Moreno.
The Ecuadorian delegation will be in Antigua until the 16th, a period in which a meeting with Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales and other leaders is scheduled, although Valencia said the more bilateral agenda is still under construction.
Celebrated under the motto of "A prosperous, inclusive and sustainable Latin America," the 26th Ibero-American Summit will host at least 17 heads of state, President Morales said yesterday.
"We understand that between 22 and 25 committees, including 17 heads of state, is an honest number," the president said during a work tour in the municipality of Jocotán, in the eastern department of Chiquimula.
