Beijing, Sep 13 – Cuba and China reviewed their collaboration here in the field of water resources, with an eye toward developing such programs in Cuba.
A memorandum of understanding sealed the talks between the president of Cuba’s National Institute of Hydraulic Resources, Ines Maria Chapman, and her Chinese peer, Minister Chen Lei, to further strengthen ties between both parties.
Minister Chapman told Prensa Latina that Cuba is taking advantage of China’s experience in terms of its water policies, in order to apply them at a time when Cuba is working specifically on that issue after approving a national water policy in December 2012.
She stated that her country is currently working on the preparation of water law, updating of various existing regulations, and a number of objectives that are being carried out in that sector within Cuba.
This contact allows focusing us between the two sides to develop Cuba’s water resources with China’s help, she said.
