Cuba, Saint Lucia Strengthen Cooperation Projects

Guantanamo, Cuba Jun 20 (Prensa Latina) The Cuba-St. Lucia bilateral ties are closer and stronger than ever, after 30 years of its establishment, said the St. Lucia Ambassador to Cuba, Malachia Fontenelle.

The high-ranking official, who is attending along with his official delegation the 16th Expocaribe Fair which takes place in the neighboring province of Santiago de Cuba, visited this city to exchange with students and professors of the University of Medical Sciences.

Fontenelle told the press that this year marks the 30th anniversary of the establishment of bilateral relations between the two Caribbean nations and that what began as a health cooperation agreement has already spread to other sectors such as education, sports and food-processing industry.

She stressed that in last 6th CARICOM Summit, Cuba strengthened agreements with St. Lucia and others on important socio-cultural and economic spheres, in order to contribute to future agreements.

She also said that the Caribbean countries are currently interested in holding business exchanges among them, because each one can contribute to the rest and support each other, so it is critical to strengthen this regional alliance.
