That was one of the key points in a statement by Chair of the Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM and Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago Honourable Kamla Persad-Bissessar. The statement was made in commemoration of the forty-first anniversary of CARICOM-Cuba diplomatic relations. In her statement, Ms. Persad-Bissessar said continued commitment and generosity of Cuba’s technical assistance in the fields of education, health, sport, agriculture, and culture, aimed at developing CARICOM’s human resources, were priceless and profoundly appreciated. She stated further that among the Community’s external partners, Cuba is by far the largest contributor to human capacity building.”I must underline that the provision of this technical assistance takes place despite the severe constraints placed on Cuba’s own social and economic development by the US economic, commercial and financial embargo including accompanying extraterritorial measures” she said. She also expressed that CARICOM States and the overwhelming majority of the international community continued to condemn those actions by the United States.
