Cuba for More Participative Migration Policies, Diplomat Says

Caracas, Apr 9 (Prensa Latina) The new migration policies fostered by the Cuban Foreign Ministry currently encourage the participation of Cubans living abroad in the development of the country.

In statements to Prensa Latina, Ernesto Soberon, Head of the Consular Affairs Directorate and of Cubans Living Abroad, pointed out that for several years these regulations have aimed to increase ties between Cuba and its fellow countrymen.

During a meeting with authorities participating in the 4th Migratory Round with Venezuela, the diplomat recognized that as a rule, the Cuban community abroad favors this type of ties.

‘There is a bigger group that fosters cultural exchanges and tourist cooperation with different countries, others interested in doing business with Cuba; involved in this type of projects not as an intention, but as concrete facts’, he noted.

According to Soberon, the policy is aimed at creating the most propitious environment for Cubans to feel completely free to seek links with their country, starting from a change in the projection of the community abroad.

In the case of Venezuela, the two countries’ authorities formalized agreements on Monday to generate mechanisms for migratory control, thus reaffirming the cooperation ties between Caracas and Havana.

In this regard, the diplomat acknowledged the idea is to create an environment to ensure a regular, orderly and safe migration flow.
