During the visit, the two education ministers signed an agreement of Recognition of Titles of Higher Education between the governments of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezu­ela and Saint Lucia.

The ministerial delega­tion also met with the Rector of the National Ex­perimental University of the Arts (UNEARTE), Nestor Viloria, who informed them of study opportunities for young Saint Lucians in different areas of the Arts in­cluding music, theater, dance, and visual arts.

The ministers then toured the Dr. Gil­berto Rodríguez Ochoa Latin American Children’s Cardiolo­gy Hospital, which was inaugu­rated in 2006 to meet the great demand of patients from birth to18 years suffering with heart defects.

Meanwhile, last Monday, an intensive Spanish Lan­guage course was launched in Saint Lucia for the 23 students selected to pursue a seven-year course in Integral Community Medicine at the Dr. Salvador Allende Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM), situated in Miranda State in the Bolivarian Republic.
