Ethiopia and Cuba strengthen cooperation in water sector

Addis Ababa, Jul 6 (Prensa Latina) The delegation of the National Institute of Hydraulic Resources (INRH) of Cuba concluded today the working visit to Ethiopia, during which an inter-institutional memorandum of understanding was signed to strengthen cooperation in the sector.

The document signed between the Ethiopian Ministry of Water and Energy and the INRH will implement the agreement established in 2014 between the two governments, the Havana embassy in Addis Ababa revealed.

The Cuban experts led by the vice president of the Institute, Javier Toledo Tapanes, arrived last July 1 in this capital with the aim of exploring collaboration areas.

Their presence follows a visit by the Minister of State for Water and Energy Asfaw Dingamo to the Caribbean island last year, which resulted in water assistance projects.

During their stay they toured water projects in the city of Adama and had a meeting with the director of the Ethiopian Meteorological Institute and president for the African continent of the World Meteorological Organization, Fiten Teshome.

Both parties agreed to work on capacity building in the meteorological sector.

They also visited the Ethiopian Institute of Water Technology where they talked with its directors, the source said.
