Cuban president leaves books, plants tree at “Angola e Cuba” school

Cuban head of State Miguel Mario Díaz-Canel Bermúdez visited Tuesday the “Angola e Cuba” school, in the municipality of Cazenga, where he left books and planted a tree.

The Angola and Cuba school was built in 1988 by Cuban technicians, as a result of cooperation between the governments of Angola and Cuba.

Now called “Public School No. 3042 Angola and Cuba”, the infrastructure has capacity for more than three thousand students in three shifts, morning, afternoon and night.

On site, Miguel Mario Díaz-Canel Bermúdez visited the four-story school that benefited from works with funds from the Public Investment Programme (PIP).

The school now has 20 classrooms, one for computing, one for meetings and one for teachers. The infrastructure also includes a library, auditorium and infirmary. Students from Angola and Cuba also have broadband internet service available.

Angola and Cuba maintain excellent cooperation relations in various areas, such as security, education, health, transport, public works, construction, oil, sports, culture, tourism, and agriculture.

The two States established diplomatic relations on November 15, 1975, four days after Angola’s independence, and a year later they signed the General Cooperation Agreement, which gave rise to the Bilateral Commission
