Brazil and Uruguay Reinforce Scientific Ties

The governments of Brazil and Uruguay signed five cooperation agreements during Uruguayan President Tabaré Vázquez’s visit to Brazil. One of them determines the creation of a permanent bilateral joint commission to formulate a cooperation program in the areas of energy, geology, and mining.

The commission will met once a year, with the two countries alternating the meeting sites.


In the communications field, the two countries made a formal pledge to cooperate in the areas of television and radio for the sake of information exchange among all South American nations.


The agreement also foresees, at a later stage, a five-year cooperation arrangement between Radiobrás and the Uruguayan Ministry of Education and Culture.


Brazil will also transfer its experience to help Uruguay set up an international cooperation agency. The other agreements deal with: cooperation in grapevine cultivation, technological innovation on factors that cause necrosis in Uruguayan pear flower buds; and the creation of vocational training centers in the two countries’ border region, inhabited by 700 thousand people.


In his speech, Lula said he hopes for greater cooperation between the two governments in the areas of security, judicial systems, health, education, environment, and sanitary conditions on the border.


“This is just the beginning of a strategic cooperation between our countries, always for the direct benefit of our societies,” the Brazilian President declared.
