Audrey Azoulay, director general of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), will hold today a meeting with Bruno Rodriguez, Cuba´s Minister of Foreign Affairs, as part of her visit to the Caribbean island.
The program of the visit includes tours of the Santa Clara Convent, headquarters of the Caribbean-EU-UNESCO Project, and the "Rafael Maria de Mendive" Primary School, in Havana´s historic center.
During her stay in Cuba, which will run until next Sunday, Azoulay will also visit the Rosario Mountain Range Biosphere Reserve, in Artemisa province, and the Cuban Art Factory, in Havana.
Cuba maintains an active participation in UNESCO, particularly in the Executive Council and the General Conference, where it has a proactive and supportive role in the organization's reform processes.
The Caribbean island entered UNESCO on August 29, 1947, and since then the links with that international body have remained uninterrupted.
