Vietnam’s agricultural experts have conducted a training course on rice cultivation for Cuban farmers in Pinar del Rio province.

Director of the provincial Rice Experimental Centre, Alexander Miranda said Vietnamese experts will provide Cuban farmers with advanced rice cultivation, watering and caring technologies along with techniques to improve productivity and yielding.

Vietnam will also transfer technologies for the centre.

The training courses are under the framework of a four year cooperative programme between Vietnam and Cuba to help the Caribbean country to produce rice.

Vietnamese experts are currently in seven provinces of Cuba to help the country self-produce rice to serve domestic demand.
