Visit by first secretary of Cuban Embassy to Penn State canceled

Posted

Editor's note: The following event has been canceled due to conflicts with First Secretary Miguel Fraga's schedule. It will be rescheduled for a date in April, according to Penn State Harrisburg.

Miguel Fraga — the first secretary of the Cuban Embassy in Washington, D.C., since diplomatic relations were reestablished between Cuba and the United States — will visit Penn State Harrisburg from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 22 in the Olmsted Building, room C213 (auditorium). 
He will discuss Cuba and its relationship with the United States.
Fraga was appointed first secretary in June 2015 to the then Cuban Interests Section. From 2008 to 2011, he served at the Cuban Embassy in Canada. Since 2006, he has worked in the Ministry of Foreign affairs in both the North American and U.S. divisions and the office of the minister.
From 2003 to 2008, Fraga was a member of the People’s Power Provincial Assembly of the city of Havana, which is the provincial parliament in Havana.
He graduated with a master’s of science in foreign relations from the Higher Institute of Foreign Relations “Raúl Roa García” in 2005 and from the University of Havana, Faculty of Law in 2003.
The event is free and open to the public. 
Penn State Harrisburg will also begin offering study tours to Cuba in 2018. Details will be released at a later date.
