Accords penned by Cuba and Equatorial Guinea
Technical protection of a laboratory to control and prevent cholera, technical assistance in the start-up of a psychiatric hospital and a center to treat children in the African country were committed to by Cuba.
An accord signed between Cuba's Institute of Radio and Television (ICRT) and Equatorial Guinea's Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism, pledged technical assistance from the Caribbean island to the Guinean Radio and Television Institute.
The agreements by the two governments were signed during the last day of the seventh session of the Joint Commission, which concluded Friday in Havana.
Cuban Minister for Foreign Investment and Economic Collaboration, Marta Lomas, executed the documents for the island, while Equatorial Guinea's Secretary of State for International Cooperation, Victoriana Nchama Nsue Okomo, signed the documents on behalf of her nation.
The commission ratified the existing 19 collaboration programs, which includes a healthcare effort being implemented by 160 Cuban medical specialists serving in Guinea, and the fight against malaria through rodent control in cities.
