Among the contributions that Cuba already has are very good genetics for livestock, but they are few and not widespread, unlike what is happening in Colombia, and this is what the Cuban government aspires to. One of the things they saw was the possibility of taking embryos and using several of the cows they had as recipients, which would allow them to make a genetic leap in a very short time.

Currently in Bogotá there is a visit from a delegation from Procuba, invited by Procolombia to hold meetings with different sectors since there are many potential business exchanges between businessmen from both countries.
