Kindly be advised that the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), in coordination with the Government of the Republic of Cuba in its capacity as Chair of the Forum of the Countries of Latin America and the Caribbean on Sustainable Development, has decided not to proceed with the fourth meeting of the Forum, which was scheduled to be held online in the morning of 31 March 2020

This decision has been made in response to the evolving situation in relation to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus and the measures being taken by the countries of the region to deal with this pandemic and, essentially, the technical impossibility of ensuring the proper participation of all the national delegations, civil society and other stakeholders in the Forum in a remote meeting modality.

The Commission will advise Forum participants of the new place and date for the fourth meeting once the present complex situation has abated
