Ambassador Lianys Torres Rivera expressed her emotion when watching the documentary film and affirmed that the Embassy of Cuba is willing to support the activities of the two women’s organizations in order to promote the advancement of women and gender equality in the two countries.

The VWU president thanked the Cuban Embassy and expects that the embassy will continue sharing information on women in politics, science and technology in Cuba, as well as supporting the two women’s unions in upcoming activities.

On this occasion, VWU President Ha Thi Nga conferred the merit medal “For the Development of Women in Vietnam” to Nancy Coro Aguiar, deputy head of the Cuban Mission, for her contributions to promote the relations between the women and women’s unions of the two countries during her term in Vietnam.
