The World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY) will hold its 19th General Assembly in Havana from November 9-12, announced the organizing committee.

More than 130 representatives of youth organizations will meet at the Havana International Conference Center with the purpose of evaluating the work of WFDY in the current global political context, said Jose Angel Maury, Head of International Relations Department of the National Committee of Young Communist League of Cuba (UJC).

He added that during the WFDY assembly also will session the International Committee of the UJC, during which the young visitors will know the results of the 10th Congress of the Cuban organization held in July 2015, as well as details of the island's reality.

This will be a space to spread the reality of this nation, how socialism is updated and show it as an alternative fairer for everyone and especially for the young, said the official.

It is expected to provide an overview of the development prospects of the country and the process of relations between Cuba and the United States, he added.

The participants will represent 70 organizations from 35 countries on five continents. A larger assistance from Latin America is expected and 23 general secretaries or principal leaders of groups from around the world have confirmed so far their assistance.
