The Central American Integration System (SICA) and the Summits of the Americas Secretariat of the OAS signed an agreement of cooperation for the follow-up of presidential mandates.

February 12th 2010, Ambassador Albert Ramdin, Assistant Secretary General of the OAS, and Mr. Juan Daniel Alemán, Secretary General of SICA, signed the agreement of cooperation between both entities in order to facilitate the exchange of experiences and knowledge regarding the systems of information used in both organizations for the follow-up of presidential mandates.

The agreement aims to harmonize and reinforce the capacities of both entities to provide Member States with useful and effective tools in the follow-up of mandates negotiated at the presidential Summits.

By providing greater efficiency in the processing of information and the systematization of results, the follow-up systems serve as useful tools in promoting greater transparency and effectiveness in the follow-up process.

In this regard, the signed agreement is an effort to facilitate the implementation of the commitments reached at the Summits, offering Member States a variety of appropriate tools in order to promote, support, and strengthen the inter-American agenda.

Therefore, the signing of such an agreement presents a significant opportunity, not only for institutional strengthening, but, above all, for the exercise of democracy.
