Bolivian Evo Morales said Friday that he and Cuban counterpart
agreed to set up a pharmaceutical plant in the Andean nation.

“We cannot go on importing medications, we cannot remain subjugated to
the international monopolies that industrialize ,” Bolivia’s
head of state said during a public event in the central province of

“And we have agreed – together, Bolivia and Cuba – we will industrialize
medications in Bolivia,” Morales said, referring to the previous night’s
conversation with Castro in Havana.

Cuba, despite its lack of resources, has developed a significant
biotechnology sector.

Castro “is very much in accord” with the initiative, Morales said,
adding that he had already instructed Minister Juan Carlos
Calvimontes to begin working with Cuban officials to advance the project.

Morales stopped in Havana for talks with Castro on his way back to
Bolivia from Costa Rica, where he attended the inauguration of new
President Luis Guillermo Solis.

“We have enormous areas of agreement in the political, ideological
realm, but now we must take an important step in the trade and
industrial integration between Cuba and Bolivia,” Morales said in
Cochabamba. EFE
