Working meeting with Montreal city authorities

The Consul General of Cuba in Montreal, Susana Malmierca Benítez, held a virtual meeting with Josefina Blanco, Montreal City Councilor, Executive Committee member and responsible for matters such as diversity, social inclusion, homelessness, universal accessibility, women, youth and seniors, and with Esteban Benavides, International Affairs Advisor of the city of Montreal.

This meeting contributed to exploring areas of common interest between the city of Montreal and Cuba, mainly in social issues.

The Consul General highlighted the achievements made in Cuba in legislative matters, in relation to the rights and possibilities for the development of women, the elderly, and people with special needs. She also reaffirmed the Cuban government's continued concern for these social sectors and pointed out some statistics of interest, especially on the large presence of women in governmental structures.

She was able to confirm the counterpart's interest in going deeper into these issues, and being able to worktogether in the future.
