Miguel Díaz-Canel, First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba and President of the Republic, stressed that the 4th International Convention on Environment and Development, beginning this Monday in Havana, contributes to cooperation on sustainable practices, inclusive economic growth and environmental protection.
The president said on Twitter that the event, to be held at the Havana Convention Palace until July 7, is an extraordinary opportunity for the future.
He also welcomed the participation of the High Authorities of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation of member countries of the Group of 77 and China (G-77+China), which in this edition will be part of the exchange, in view of the fact that Cuba holds the pro tempore presidency of that coordination mechanism.
According to the invitation to the event, this edition will promote exchange between countries, experiences, sustainable practices, knowledge transfer, sustained and inclusive economic growth, participatory social development, environmental protection and human dignity.
Cuba’s Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment reported today on Twitter that some 1,200 nationals and 200 foreigners from some 20 countries will attend the event.
