It was also used to review the timeline leading up to the Summit in Andorra, the next event of which will be the meeting on 30 November, and Spain’s cooperation at a logistical, protocol and security level was reaffirmed. Spain has congratulated Andorra on its good management of the Pro Tempore Secretariat in attaining the consensus of the ministers for the different portfolios in approving the declarations that contain specific mandates with repercussions on the lives of people in the region.

To end, they reiterated their agreement on a commitment to multilateralism and the 2030 Agenda as ways to tackle not only such immediate challenges as COVID-19, but also long-term challenges in the fields of health, food security and climate change.
