At the opening session of the University 2022 International Congress, the Cuban president stressed that due to the harsh conditions, worsened by the Covid-19 pandemic, inequalities and the growing power of transnational capital have increased, as well as the threats to peace and national security.

The head of State added that 61 percent of the Cuban population has received at least a shot of homegrown Covid-19 vaccines, but low-income nations have only vaccinated 10 percent of their inhabitants.

Due to these realities, the need to boost the relationship between government management and science is more urgent. Cuba, for example, has strengthened the ties between the sectors of knowledge and goods and services, as well as the sphere of institutionality and organizational forms that support scientific, technological and training activities.

Diaz-Canel added that this system is based on Cuba’s long tradition of education, the content of government programs, the nation’s vision until 2030 and debates on sustainable development.

“We seek to turn knowledge into transformative social forces. It is not a question of having more science. These capabilities must enable us to achieve prosperous, sustainable and fair development,” he said.

The University 2022 Congress is being held at Havana’s International Conference Center to discuss the fulfillment of the Sustainable Development Goals, the university-enterprise relationship, knowledge management, the role of students organizations and unions and the education of proficient professionals.
