The Cuba Cooperation France Association (CubaCoop) announced on Thursday that it will conduct an economic mission to Cuba in April to visit projects implemented and outline new cooperation initiatives.

In its weekly issue, La lettre électronique Hebdo, which reaches thousands of subscribers in France, CubaCoop’s founding president Roger Grevoul said that the trip to Cuba will take place from April 17 to 28, with working stays in Havana, the capital of Cuba, and Cienfuegos province.

The delegation will hover around 40 members, including local authorities, entrepreneurs, representatives of political forces, and trade unionists from France.

Founded in 1995, CubaCoop has promoted dozens of decentralized cooperation projects in Cuba in water and sanitation, renewable energies, food security, sports, and culture.

It has also launched campaigns to help Cuba in exceptional situations, in particular hurricanes and severe accidents, besides supporting sectors of its population in the face of the devastating consequences of the economic, commercial, and financial blockade imposed by the United States.

On February 9, the French association called to donate funds to purchase food and essential products for institutions vulnerable to the US blockade, including hospitals, orphanages, and educational centers.
