Havana, June 17 (RHC) -- A 43-member delegation from the United States will for the first time participate in Cubaindustria, an industrial fair aimed at attracting foreign investment to the Caribbean state, organizers said Thursday.
Adriana Barcelo, director of Technology Management at the Cuban Ministry of Industries and vice president of the organizing committee, told reporters in Havana that some 10 U.S. companies will attend the fair, the second of its kind, set from June 20th through the 24th.
In addition, representatives of the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, comprising Spanish-speaking American businessmen, will be present at the fair, said Barcelo, adding that the delegation seeks to "explore the Cuban market."
This year's fair will focus on sustainable development, drawing U.S. companies in the field of recycling and technological innovation, she said.
The expert added that Russia and China are already well into negotiations with Cuba on the production of trucks and railway equipment, as well as the assembly of Yutong buses and electric motorbikes.
The fair is expected to draw 400 foreign entrepreneurs from 28 countries, and 1,600 representatives from Cuba's industrial sectors.
