US Expert Interested in Exchanges with Cuba
2011.12.14 - 09:23:15 / web@radiorebelde.icrt.cu

HAVANA, Cuba.- US biologist Peter Agre, the winner of the Nobel Chemistry Prize in 2003, expressed on Tuesday in this capital his wish to establish relations of cooperation with Cuba in spheres like public health, "in which the island is an example to the western world."

“This country has a lot to teach us in terms of solving problems existing in other territories of the planet,” stressed Agre during a meeting between Cuban and US scientists inaugurated at Havana’s National Hotel.

Putting these ideas at risk, however, are the restrictions imposed by Washington, which allowed our trip because we traveled exclusively as scientists, underlined the director of the John Hopkins University and a member of the US delegation.

The meeting, organized by the Cuban Academy of Sciences and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, is aimed at identifying opportunities for cooperation between communities in the fields of biology, environmental problems, new technologies and politics.

Fidel Castro Diaz-Balart, scientific consultant with the Council of State, explained that this meeting represents a significant step to strengthen bonds, and highlighted the current mutual interest to exchange experiences, with the purpose of achieving better understanding between the parties.

Likewise, Margarita Irizarry-Ramirez, a professor at the University of Puerto Rico, pointed out that the purpose of the meeting is to identify possible fields in which cooperation can be established for the benefit of the American continent.

The forum will run until December and, as part of the program, participants will visit the Scientific Area located east of Havana, the National Meteorology Institute and the National Aquarium.
