Vincentian Richard Byron-Cox is scheduled to deliver a distinguished lecture at Cuba’s premier tertiary institution, the University of Havana on Nov. 4.

Byron-Cox who is an international law and relations specialist, diplomat, linguist and United Nations expert on sustainable development, says that while he has lectured at prestigious universities around world, this invitation is very special for many reasons.

He said the invitation is special not least because of his admiration for Cuba’s commitment to the anti-colonial and anti-apartheid struggles, its provision of support in many areas especially education and health to developing countries, and its significant contributions in many fields to the upliftment of his homeland St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the latest being the construction of Argyle International Airport.

The lecture, which Byron-Cox will deliver in Spanish is on the topic, “Cuba: An important part of Our Caribbean”.
