The objective of theforum, which will include the participation of Chancellor Manuel González, as well as the Deputy Director General of the World Organization of Migration, Laura Thompson, and high authorities of other countries, is to provide a space for the exchange of experiences and good practices, to identify and analyze migration challenges and opportunities.
Only the region can fulfill the responsibility to protect the life, well-being and dignity of migrants, and to address the migration phenomenon in all its aspects: humanitarian and developmental, among others,”
said the Costa Rican Foreign Minister.
Almagro will be in the main event at the San José Palacio Hotel on Tuesday, where he will present a report on the subject in the morning.
