Havana, Nov 25 (RHC) The television of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) broadcast a special program on Cuba this Thursday, with the participation of our country’s ambassador in Dubai, Roberto Blanco.

The diplomat, who also serves as Cuba’s general commissioner at Expo 2020 Dubai, thanked the UAE government and authorities for the support offered to enable the largest island of the Antilles to attend the Expo with its own pavilion.

Blanco affirmed that one of the purposes of the Caribbean nation is to show, in addition to our culture, traditions, music, dances and Habanos, our outstanding scientific achievements, in particular biotechnology and biopharmaceuticals.

“Cuba is the first and only Latin American state, so far, to develop and produce its own vaccines against the SARS CoV-2 coronavirus, the cause of the Covid-19 pandemic,” he stressed.

He stressed that this allowed immunizing more than 80 percent of the population, including children older than two years.

Likewise, in line with the central theme “Cuba in balance with the world”, the pavilion exhibits actions and policies implemented for the protection of the environment, adaptation to climate change and sustainable development, such as the Life Task.

The ambassador referred to the objectives of Cuban assistance to the aforementioned event, such as promoting exports of goods and services in the biopharmaceutical, agri-food, medical services and renewable energy industries, among other sectors.

He elaborated on the celebration of the second virtual edition of the Cuba 2021 Business Forum, an occasion on which the Cuban Minister of Foreign Trade, Rodrigo Malmierca will present the new portfolio of investment opportunities on the island, on the 30th of this month. (Source: PL)
