On October 10, 2019 H.E. Mr. Hector Conde Almetda, Ambassador, the Embassy of the Republic of Cuba to the kingdom of Thailand, visited Khon Kaen University for the purpose of building up a friendship with Khon Kaen University. During his visit on the first day we took him for a tour of our university, and later in the afternoon he gave a lecture “Cuba and Thai-Cuba relations” at the faculty of Humanity and Social Sciences. On the morning of the second day we had an official welcoming ceremony hosted by the President and the Vice President of Khon Kaen University. After the lunch hosted by Khon Kaen University, he visited the Faculty of Medicine and gave a lecture about “the Cuban Health System”. The Cuban health system is deemed to be one of the best health systems and the faculty of medicine hope to learn something to adapt to the Thai health system.
