HAVANA, Cuba, Aug 26 (ACN) The president of the Councils of State and Ministers, Miguel Diaz-Canel called for the elimination of difficulties in foreign investment in the education sector, during a meeting with authorities from the Ministries of Education and Higher Education.
Diaz-Canel learned that among the main obstacles to investment is the shortage of qualified personnel, and in that sense called to strengthen and diversify exports of goods and services, tasks that cannot be postponed given the complex economic situation in the country.
The Ministry of Education has collaboration agreements with 16 countries in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean and Australia, and will produce audiovisuals and didactic toys to promote their exportable items.
In addition, the expansion, through the use of new technologies, of the recognized literacy program Yo sí puedo (Yes, I Can) is part of the Cuban entity's plans.
Díaz-Canel commented on the revival projects that have been deployed in the provinces for some years now, which have allowed new spaces to be opened for the recreation of the people and have been used during the months of vacations.
