Multilateral Diplomacy Drives Initiatives of Small Island Developing States' Major Groups and Stakeholders at United Nations

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- (Marketwired) -- 04/21/14 -- Major groups and stakeholders of the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States continue delegations for thematic areas on Millennium Development Goals and Post-2015 Agenda, including human rights, social development, climate change, biodiversity, diplomatic missions, and international partnerships by initiating multilateral motives on intergovernmental affairs at this week's Intersessional meeting from April 21 through 25 at the United Nations.

ECCO2 Global Partners, an intergovernmental association of civil society partnerships (in cooperation with Member States), as ECCO2 Haiti Programme, Micronesia New Millennium Program, and Jamaica New Millennium Programme plan to strengthen its multilateral affairs by establishing thematic focal points in Europe, North America, West Africa, Brazil, and China to develop international supply chains that will create job opportunities for small island nations, as Jamaica, Haiti and the Dominican Republic for assembly and manufacturing of textiles, machinery, and consumer goods that are developed from raw materials that can be cost effectively imported from origins as China.

H.E. Cary Lee Peterson, Chairman of ECCO2 Global Partners comments, "There are over forty million people in the Caribbean alone. One fourth of these people live in Haiti where the unemployment ratio is above 40 percent according to global statistics. We are working to develop multilateral supply chains in the U.S., West Africa, Brazil, the Asia-Pacific region, and Europe that offer efficient and sustainable methods to manufacture and distribute products that would usually not be economically viable to produce in the Western World due to logistics and cost of labor for certain parts of production."

The anticipation is to develop inexpensive labor for foreign private sectors (without downsizing the number of indigenous laborers) and create jobs that offer a slight wage increase to workers in developing island nations, as Haiti, who have a lower GDP rate per capita and employment-to-population ratio than the rest of the Western Hemisphere. Europe, West Africa, Brazil, and United States, who are on the sending or receiving end of these supply chains stand to benefit from this motive due to the fact that more goods can be produced and distributed in a shorter timeframe at a lower cost (via entrepots in small island nations) without compromising product quality or increasing the cost of goods (due to expensive raw materials) that would inflate resale pricing within a marketplace, which would impact private sector budgets that include compensation to indigenous laborers of the micro-economies, who are exporting the raw materials and spare parts used for production of finished product to the end buyer.

ECCO2 Global Partners has established civil society partnerships within Eastern Europe, the Caribbean, Micronesia, and West Africa, in conjunction with the Diplomatic Mission Peace and Prosperity (Europe), ECCO2 Jamaica, Centre for Climate Change and Environmental Study (Nigeria), ECCO2 Corp. (U.S. and Guam), and Haitian NGO partners, AHDSEE and CMOCDAPUNDHJ. Overall, the thematic agendas on multilateralism are to create awareness and allure support from other Member States, major groups, and stakeholders at the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS) to increase a global market share in international trade that moderates economy, social development, and international trade partnerships between Member States where there are opportunities for an increase in gross national product and rate per capita from production or labor.
