Johannesburg - Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa signed an agreement on water management with her Cuban counterpart on Monday, her department said.

"This new agreement is meant to assist the department in the areas of geo-hydrology and engineering services particularly for rural and disadvantaged areas..." it said in a statement.

Molewa told Cuban minister, Ines Maria Chapman Waugh, at the signing of the agreement that the two countries had a lot to share in the "water sector".

"We are on the right path as a country to correct the imbalances of the past and this is a huge task that requires dedication from the men and women of this country," Molewa said.

"However we are always mindful of our friends who are willing to lend a hand in our drive towards this ideal."
