A high level Cuban parliamentary delegation will visit their counterparts in the British parliament in November as part of an exchange visit co-ordinated by the Inter Parliamentary Union. The six national assembly members make up the largest ever delegation from the Cuban parliament to the UK, and the visit falls just before important general elections are due to take place in Cuba in early 2018.
The group have been invited by the Speaker of the House of Commons, the Rt. Hon John Bercow MP. Their programme includes meeting MPs and peers from all parties, senior government ministers including Sir Alan Duncan MP, Minister of State for the Americas, local government representatives, academics, and members of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Cuba.
They come from diverse backgrounds and professional specialisms. Santiago Lajes Choy is university rector; Maria Rubio Hernandez is a qualified doctor and specialist in the prevention of breast cancer; and Pablo Oden Marichal Rodriquez is founder of Cuba’s Christian Student Movement, a pastor and professor at the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Matanzas. Other delegation members include a marine biologist, a journalist, and a lecturer in International relations.
