Caracas, Venezuela.- The president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, celebrated on Wednesday the 19th anniversary of the first integration project signed between the Bolivarian nation and Cuba, to open the way to cooperation for the development of both peoples.
In a message broadcast on Twitter, the Venezuelan president assured that this great step of brotherhood marked the union in Latin America.
It is the Bolivar-Marti Agreement, signed by commanders Hugo Chavez (1954-2013) and Fidel Castro (1926-2016), which represents ‘the ultimate demonstration that it is possible to build a better world,’ Maduro said on the digital platform.
On October 30, 2000, the Comprehensive Collaboration Agreement between Cuba and Venezuela was signed in Caracas, a rapprochement through which various agreements and exchange projects arose in areas such as health, education, sports, culture and production.
As part of this alliance, more than 1,400 exchange projects have been signed so far, with emphasis on health services, drug supplies, counseling and human resources training in educational, sports, cultural and productive programs.
