China assists Cuba to ship 5,000 sets of household solar photovoltaic power generation systems in Shenzhen

The China-Cuba climate change south-south cooperation project material delivery ceremony was held in Shenzhen on the 24th. China assisted 5,000 Cuban households in Cuba in areas with complex terrain to provide household solar photovoltaic systems. The materials will be shipped to Cuba in the near future.

The relevant person in charge of the Climate Change Division of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment of China stated at the material delivery ceremony that adhering to multilateralism and global cooperation is the only correct choice for addressing climate change. China has always attached great importance to addressing climate change, implemented a national strategy to actively address climate change, and pragmatically promoted various forms of South-South cooperation in addressing climate change, and did everything it could to help developing countries improve their ability to address climate change. Cuba is the first Latin American country to establish diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China. It shares weal and woe and sympathy with each other. The continued deepening of cooperation between the two countries in the field of climate change will surely benefit the two countries and their peoples.

Dennis, Consul General of the Republic of Cuba in Guangzhou, said that this project will provide household solar photovoltaic systems to 5,000 Cuban families located in areas with complex terrain. This will greatly improve the quality of life of these families and help improve Cuba’s ability to cope with climate change. She expressed gratitude to China for its efforts and contributions to promoting the response to climate change, and hoped that China and Cuba will continue to work together in the field of environmental protection and response to climate change in the future, and promote more bilateral cooperation in related fields.

China and Cuba renewed the signing of relevant cooperation documents at the end of 2019. China assisted Cuba with 5,000 sets of household solar photovoltaic power generation systems and 25,000 LED lights to help Cuba solve the electricity problem of remote rural residents and improve its ability to cope with climate change.
