Angola and Venezuela Strengthen Cooperation

Luanda, Mar 22. – The Eduardo Dos Santos Foundation (FESA) of Angola and the Bolivarian University of Venezuela (UBV) signed today a memorandum of understanding to strengthen cooperation ties in the educational sector.

The agreement was signed at the headquarters of the Foundation by the president of FESA, Ismael Diogo da Silva, and the secretary general of the UBV, Jose Berrios.

According to the document, both agencies will jointly develop research projects, teaching and socio-community insertion, scientific and technical energy, which will contribute to the development of both Angola and Venezuela.

It also provides for the establishment of a program of scientific and technical cooperation for the training of Angolans in various courses, including agroecology, Architecture, Social Communication, Education and oil refining and petrochemical industries, among others.

Da Silva said that this agreement reinforces the Fesa cooperative ties with Venezuela, which he regarded as a brother and friend, with cultural similarities with Africa.

For its advancement, Angola, in this period of national reconstruction, prioritizes the training of technical and professional people, a task to which Cuba has contributed greatly, he acknowledged.

The Venezuelan educational representative said that the agreement, an initiative born as an idea in the context of America-Africa meetings, will enable the strengthening of cooperation and friendly relations and solidarity between Angola and Venezuela.

The Bolivarian University of Venezuela, inspired by the Bolivarian integrationist thinking, advocates a social projection, linked to socioeconomic, environmental, cultural and educational development of communities in the regions of this South American state.(Prensa Latina)
