A group of young people from St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) preparing to study in Cuba, met on Saturday, January 14 with the ambassador of Cuba to St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG), Jose M. Leyva.
A report in Cuba’s Prensa Latina said during the meeting the ambassador commented on Cuba’s history, the current situation, as well as the characteristics and benefits of the educational system.
At the meeting held at the diplomatic mission in SVG, ambassador Leyva wished the students much success in their professional and human training, as well as the vocation of solidarity that moves and unites both nations.
He told the young people that “this scholarship programme is another example of the Revolution’s generation, brotherhood with St Vincent and the Grenadines, the Caribbean and the peoples of the world.”
President of Cuba, Miguel Diaz-Canel visited St Vincent and the Grenadines in December,2022 on the first stopover of a Caribbean tour that also included Barbados and Grenada.
“This visit will result in the consolidation of excellent political ties and will allow us to advance our cooperative relations,” the president stressed at a meeting with Prime Minister, Dr Ralph Gonsalves.
Eight Vincentians are due to leave SVG later this month to begin studies at institutions of higher learning in Cuba.
