INFLUENTIAL figures from the world eco-agricultural movement – including 60 from the United States – have been meeting in Havana from Tuesday, May 27 to discuss Cuba’s experiences in this type of sustainable and diversified model that extends throughout the island.

The largest delegation comes from the United States and the vast majority of U.S. states will be represented. The delegation is headed by Mr. Meter Rosse, executive director of the Food First NGO.

Professors, agriculturists, researchers, students from several U.S. universities including Washington State, North Carolina and Michigan amongst others, are sharing their experiences with colleagues from Cuba and many other countries around the world.

According to Dr. Ricardo Delgado, president of the National Association of Agricultural and Forestry Workers and organizer of the event, Mario Ahumada from Chile and president of the Latin American eco-agricultural movement, is attending the Havana meeting.

More than 200 foreign delegates are sharing their expertise over three days in the International Conference Center. European representatives from Spain, Germany, Italy, Denmark and Belgium are present, as well as invited guests from South Korea, Japan and China.

The 5th National Meeting of Organic Agriculture takes place as Cuba receives a harvest of more than 200,000 tons of organic rice via the labors of rice growers from the urban agricultural sector.
