Eighteen Cuban technicians are expected in Antigua and Barbuda shortly, following the signing of a technical cooperation agreement between Cuba and the twin island state.
Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Works, Clarence Pilgrim, and Cuban Ambassador to Antigua and Barbuda, Gustavo Veliz Olivares, signed the contract on Monday.
Under the contract, the ministry of works will benefit from 18 Cuban technicians, whose skillsets range from engineers, mechanics and machine specialists.
The technicians will provide skilled labour for construction purposes.
Pilgrim said the technicians would assist in bolstering the technical capacity of the ministry by serving in such areas as the government workshop, road programme, and within the ministry’s plants.
According to him, the Cuban technicians would boost the capacity within the ministry to embark upon and complete new and existing projects.
Additionally, the employees at the Ministry of Works will also be exposed to a wealth of knowledge from their Cuban counterparts.
It is anticipated that the Cuban technicians will engage and assist  the ministry in its apprenticeship programme during their one year stay.
