Cuba and Mexico sign agreement on educational matters


Havana, February 6 (RHC) The Ministry of Higher Education of Cuba (MES) and the Secretariat of Public Education of Mexico signed a cooperation agreement in higher education.

The agreement was signed by the Mexican Undersecretary of Higher Education Francisco Luciano Concheiro and by the head of the MES Walter Baluja, within the framework of the 14th International Congress of Higher Education, which is in session in Havana until Friday.

Concheiro stressed that the document generates mechanisms to establish concrete actions and is also a sample of the good will and interest of governments.

He added that the agreement was nourished by missions from both countries, inter-institutional exchanges and recent meetings at the 26th Summit of Rectors Cuba and Mexico, held last December in the city of Querétaro.

The Mexican Undersecretary of Higher Education highlighted that this meeting promoted the signing of 13 collaboration agreements between educational institutions, to which will be added those that consolidate the follow-up of letters of intent, signed at the event around four axes.

He specified that the established pillars are: the linking of strategic productive sectors, the opportunities for internationalization of research curricula, the teaching of strategies to promote exchange programs, as well as the continuous improvement of the links between universities and companies.

Meanwhile, the Cuban minister expressed that the signing of the document represents a very important moment for the educational institutions of both countries, in order to strengthen ties for the creation and management of knowledge and for the training of future generations.

Baluja highlighted the decades of collaboration in various areas and the historical ties that unite the Cuban and Mexican people. (Source: PL)
