Del Toro said the meeting will also promote the results of scientific research in the field, allowing delegates to know and share best practices of what the different countries are doing not only for high-yield athletes, but for improving the peoples' health through sports and physical activity.
He said the masterly lectures will start on Nov.24, including that of Antonio Becali, the president of the Cuban Sports Institute (Inder).
