Havana, October 22 (AIN-RHC) -- Cuba is set to hold the largest commercial fair in its history from November 3rd through the 9th with the attendance of one thousand four hundred companies and enterprises from 64 countries at ExpoCuba Exhibition Halls.
The participation of prestigious world firms reaffirms the confidence of international businessmen and women on the Cuban market and its potentials, according to Cuban Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment Minister, Rodrigo Malmierca, at a Havana news conference.
The minister added that more than 18 thousand square meters have already been contracted by participating Cuban and foreign companies, three thousand more than last year, breaking the record of the event started by the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, 30 years ago. The most important countries on hand will be Spain, Venezuela, Brazil and Germany.
Malmierca highlighted that Havana’s Trade Fair is one of the most important such gatherings in the Caribbean and Latin American, giving a blow to the economic, financial and trade blockade imposed on Cuba by the United States for more than 50 years.
Progress made in the construction process at the Mariel Special Development Zone in the province of Artemisa will be presented at the trade meeting.
The Cuban Pavilion or exhibition area will cover five thousand square meters, highlighting the island’s health and biotechnology industries, along with other sectors of the Cuban economy and services.
