This second meeting, co-sponsored by the Academy of Sciences of Cuba (ACC) and the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences (AAAS), will meet until December 16 to debate a wide range of topics, including the environment, sea, life sciences and scientific policy, Diaz-Balart pointed out at the opening session.

The event is being attended by top-level experts who will review matters of great importance from a scientific approach and improve understanding between the communities of the two countries, Diaz-Balart added.

Scientific communities anywhere have forums and approach matters of global interest, hence the importance of convening such bilateral meetings among different sectors including intellectuals or experts in humanist sciences, basic sciences, applied sciences or culture, he stressed.

Cuba-U.S. relations will not be hindered by U.S. sectors insisting on keeping the communities detached, and it will be positive for the visitors to become acquainted with Cuba´s problems, either scientific, socio-economic or of any other nature.

On the potential inclusion of nanotechnology, Castro Diaz-Balart told Prensa Latina that all branches of modern sciences and high-tech, especially those focused on economic sustainability, will have room for exchange, although it will not be a specific topic on the agenda.

However, the results may be arranged into detailed work projects for future cooperation, said the Academy of Sciences of Cuba in a communiqué to announce the closing session of the meeting for December 16.
