Luis Galvez, president of the organizing committee said that the delegates are mainly from Latin America and the Caribbean. This event is held every two years and it is organized by national and international institutions interested in the spreading of knowledge and the development of the potential of this plant.

The main topics of debate are diversification in obtaining products and sub products, using chemical techniques and biotechnology to produce energy, alcohol and beverages, as well as animal fodder. Environment protection will also be discussed, Galvez added.

Due to the use of food to produce bio fuels, the Canadian State Fund for Modernization from the Canadian Agency for International Development is promoting a Workshop on Sustainable Production of Alcohol and Beverages, in which experts of several nations will take part.

The Congress will be held at the Havana Hotel Nacional, one of the best known Cuban hotels and will be sponsored by Venezuela Oil Company (PDVSA) and its subsidiary PDVSA Agricola.
