Dr Irfaan Ali praised the valued connection between Guyana and Cuba at a reception honouring the 50th Anniversary of bilateral relations between the two countries on Thursday evening at the Pegasus Suites and Corporate Centre.

President Ali highlighted that Cuba has made “massive contributions” to the development of Guyana, especially in the health sector, through the training of thousands of healthcare workers.

He said that when selflessness and sacrifice are reflected, Cuba stands at the pinnacle. This, the President explained, is a testament to the people of Cuba being committed to the causes of humanity, uplifting lives and making the world a better place.

“Today, as we celebrate 50 years of strong friendship, on behalf of the Government and people of Guyana, I wish the President, Government and people of Cuba the best health, prosperity and success.

A commemorative stamp to mark the 50th Anniversary of diplomatic relations was also unveiled.

Prime Minister, Brigadier (Ret’d) Mark Phillips; the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Hugh Todd; other Ministers of the Government; the Cuban Ambassador to Guyana, Narciso Reinaldo Socorro and members of the diplomatic community were also at the event. Guyana and Cuba established diplomatic relations on December 8, 1972.
