UNASUR to 'allow further regional integration,' Ecuadorean Foreign Minister

Extraordinary Meeting of Heads of State and Government of the Union of South American Nations, held in Brasília.

Once the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) becomes operational next Friday in Quito “it will be useful to integrate not only the politics of the region, but also infrastructure, health, social inclusion and energy,” Ecuadorean Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño, said.

According to Patiño, the organization will “encourage more regional legislative, health care and investment agreements.”

The Foreign Ministry prepares the meeting for next Friday, when the organization becomes operational after the cornerstone for the UNASUR headquarters is set in the presence of all foreign ministers from its member countries.

The foundation ceremony is scheduled to take place in the city of Mitad del Mundo, in the outskirts of Quito.

The building, which will be named after former UNASUR Secretary General Néstor Kirchner, is expected to be finished by 2012.

Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa and foreign minister from the region will be present in the ceremony.

Bolivia, Colombia, Argentina, Ecuador, Chile, Guyana, Peru, Surinam and Venezuela are all member countries of the organization.
