Quang Binh will organize activities to celebrate the 50th anniversary of leader Fidel Castro's visit to the liberated region of South Vietnam so that the young generation can better understand and promote the traditions of the two countries and peoples.
Sharing with Cuba's difficulties, Thang said that Quang Binh's army and people always support the lifting of the embargo against Cuba.
In his speech, Gerardo Hernandez Nordelo, head of the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution, expressed his respect for the sentiments between Vietnam, Cuba and Cuba with Quang Binh. He said lifting the embargo is an important task and goal of the Committees today.
In a friendly atmosphere, the two sides shared the results of the Vietnam - Cuba Dong Hoi Friendship Hospital, a meaningful gift from President Fidel Castro and the Cuban people to Quang Binh.
In September 1973, Cuban President Fidel Castro visited Quang Binh and proposed to help Quang Binh province plan the new city of Dong Hoi, build Dong Hoi hospital (later named Vietnam - Cuba Dong Hoi Friendship Hospital).
On May 19, 1974, the construction officially started in Ly Ninh commune, Dong Hoi town (now Nam Ly ward, Dong Hoi city, Quang Binh province). All equipment, materials and machinery for the construction of this project were transported from Cuba. In the following years, Cuba sent 146 experts to Quang Binh province to operate, manage as well as transfer science and technology and directly treat patients.
