Venezuelan Culture Minister Francisco Sesto highlighted on Monday the importance of the ALBA Awards in arts and literature, convoked jointly by Venezuela and Cuba for the Latin American and Caribbean peoples.
In news statements, Sesto said the initiative seeks to recognize those who have contributed to the unity of Latin American and Caribbean peoples with their work and life.
The recognition is sponsored by the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas (ALBA) Cultural Fund and the first winners should be known this year, with the possibility of additional categories.
Among joint actions of Cuba and Venezuela, Sesta pointed out the recent participation in the International Beijing Book Fair and the coming attendance at a similar event in Moscow, to spread the readership and appreciation of Latin American literature.
