Chavez-Correa Mini-summit in Ecuador

Puyo, Ecuador, Oct 28 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez arrives in that city on Tuesday to dialogue with his Ecuadorian counterpart, Rafael Correa, on the progress of joint projects and the world financial crisis.

According to the official agenda, the two presidents plan to analyze the current mutual projects, and sign some others such as the creation of a national agro-ecological school.

Food sovereignty, complementation between the two countries' basic baskets, and the Ecuadorian access to Venezuela's Simon Bolivar satellite, to enter into orbit soon, are also among the issues expected to be examined.

The meeting is part of the agreements reached in the Ecuadorian city of Manta in July, when Correa and Chavez agreed to meet every three months to analyze progress of the deals signed, and reach others favoring regional integration.
