The diplomat met with CubaCoop President Victor Fernandez at the Embassy’s headquarters, who shared details of the donation and the projects promoted by CubaCoop to support Cuba’s socioeconomic development.
According to Fernandez, 25,000 euros will go to an aid to the National Institute of Hydraulic Resources for works related to water and sanitation in the city of Matanzas, where a fierce fire destroyed facilities in the industrial zone and caused the loss of human lives this month.
The other 20,000 euros are the result of a public collection launched by CubaCoop, which contributed 10,000 euros in response to the accident at the Supertanker Base in Matanzas, a solidarity initiative to which dozens of French citizens have already contributed.
During the meeting, the parties discussed the impact of the United States economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba and the Caribbean island’s actions to advance its development in such a complex scenario.
In this regard, they discussed measures recently announced by the Cuban Government to stimulate foreign investment.
Fernandez ratified the association’s commitment to accompanying Cuba’s development, and in particular to support efforts to access foreign investment.
