Cuba and South Africa have signed a cooperation agreement in Basic Education, joining the existing ones in health, water resources, human settlements and professional training on the island.
The current agreement will foster, among other objectives, the sharing of experiences of the Caribbean nation in teaching mathematics and science to strengthen the training in the South African public education system.
The document was signed by South African Basic Education Minister, Angie Motshekga, and Cuban ambassador, Carlos Fernandez de Cossio.
The agreement has been signed in the context of the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the official beginning of cooperation between the two countries, which began when the first group of Cuban doctors arrived in South Africa in February 1996.
Officials from the Department of International Relations and Cooperation of South Africa and the Caribbean diplomatic legation, attended the ceremony.
More than 600 Cuban cooperators are currently working here, 424 of which are medical professionals and the rest belong to other areas.
