Today s activities include a meeting with Cuban acting Agriculture Minister Maria del Carmen Perez and a briefing on an energy project in the municipality of Regla, west of Havana.
As part of his Sunday tour of the Caribbean Nursery School in the western territory of Jaguey Grande, some 62 miles from Havana, the governor highlighted the close relations between his country and Cuba.
"I met with Raul Castro and the government s other ministers, and we have established future plans to extend our collaboration and cooperation with Cuba," stated Douglas.
These talks took place at the Council of State building on Saturday, after the also revolutionary armed forces minister, Cuban Vice President Carlos Lage and acting Foreign Trade Minister Bruno Rodriguez officially welcomed the Caribbean statesman.
Douglas started his official agenda on the island by laying a wreath at the monument erected to Cuban National Hero Jose Marti at the Havana s Revolution Square, and later visited an agricultural cooperative in Havana province.
Cuba and Saint Kitts and Nevis established diplomatic relations in 1995.
