“Prosperity with Equity: The Challenge of Cooperation in the Americas” will be the central theme of the Seventh Summit of the Americas when Canada and other members of the Organization of the Americas (OAS) meet in Panama City, Panama, April 10 and 11.
The central theme will be discussed within “several sub-themes, among them education, health, energy, environment, migration, security, citizen participation and democratic governance” according to the summit’s website.
Canada officially joined the OAS 25 years ago. Summits of the Americas have been held every three years since 1994.
In the days before this year’s summit there will be a Youth Forum, a Civil Society Forum, a Business Forum and a Forum of University Presidents.
