The Cuban government's progress in the health sciences is a major attraction to the Atlantic region because of the Central American island's extensive experience in public colleges. This was confirmed by Eduardo Verano after his meeting with Cuban Ambassador Javier Caamaño in Cairo, with whom he seeks to strengthen international cooperation relations.
One of the priority issues for Governor Eduardo Verano is the establishment of the College of Health Sciences at the University of Atlantico, as Barranquilla has six private colleges, without low-income youth having access to this program.
“We are creating the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Atlantico and what we want is to have a medicine program and for it to be general, and obviously they have made very great progress and there can be exchange. There are many opportunities for joint work between us and the Cuban government,” Verano said. .
The head of the department added that the most important thing is the desire to establish a very close relationship between the ministry and the Cuban government in the future for several reasons: cultural exchange, education, sports and the strengthening of bilateral relations. He said, “What the visit does today is open the doors and resume the agenda, and it is clear to build a process that depends on culture, sports, and many other processes that concern us.”
Cuban Ambassador Javier Caamaño Cairo expressed that this session is being held to study the possibilities of expanding bilateral relations between the two countries, and in this case between Atlantico and the island.
“We have identified, says Governor Verano, some areas that have common agreement, such as culture and the medicine program. The idea is that of all the expertise that Cuba has, they can replicate it in Barranquilla and use what they need most and that is appropriate. There is “A very beautiful relationship between the two governments and has achieved remarkable results.”
The Ambassador invited the Governor of Atlantico, Eduardo Verano, to attend the next edition of the Book Fair that will be held in Cuba from February 15 to 25, an event that will welcome readers, authors, editors, librarians and celebrities to the 32nd International Fair. From the book Havana.
