With the presence of rectors and officials from 14 Cuban universities and heads and representatives of 21 Mexican Higher Education Institutions (HEI), the University of Celaya participated in the biannual meeting of Rectors Mexico-Cuba Summit on February 13 and 14 in the city of Guanajuato.

This event is developed in collaboration with the National Association of Universities and Higher Education Institutions (ANUIES), the Ministry of Higher Education of Cuba and the Cuban Embassy in Mexico.

For our Rector, Dr. Martha Aguilar Trejo, this is a meeting that follows the line of international collaboration of the University of Celaya where there is a dialogue that allows the creation of strategic academic alliances to generate projects between institutions that contribute to the development of our students and our environment.

"Meetings like this one are fundamental to highlight the enormous effort that universities make in the generation of knowledge, understanding, cooperation, joint work, innovation and concrete strategies that solve problems from the local level but with a global vision; at the University of Celaya we are leaders in these issues and we are very committed to an international project of education, research and training," said our Rector.

For his part, the Executive Secretary General of ANUIES, Jaime Valls Esponda, said that the Rectors' Summit is a space for analysis and exchange of opinions to make higher education the true lever for the development of nations and said that the relationship between the two countries is going through an excellent stage to strengthen binational collaboration.
