While Cuba’s communist regime has implemented modest economic reforms, allowing some private ventures, running a business on the island remains a challenge

The Cuban government is to offer training to specialists from across the Caribbean on how to cope with natural disasters at a new meteorological center in the province of Ciego de Avila, local press reported on Saturday.

According to the Cuban media, the minister of science, technology and the environment, Elba Rosa Perez, said that this institution would offer preparation courses to mitigate disaster damage to scientists and researchers from Caribbean nations.

“This is an ideal place to address … weather predictions and climate change. Furthermore, it can offer technical assistance, scientific and technological services and innovations,” she said.

As well as studying the climate, the site is also an advanced center for weather predictions and counts with an early warning system ahead of dangerous climate conditions such as hurricanes.

Furthermore, Perez said the site has the conditions, the technology and the personnel required to become an excellent convention center in Cuba. Enditem
