Havana, Jun 1 (RHC)-- Cuban Prime Minister Manuel Marrero spoke about foreign investment opportunities on the island during the second day of the Congress of the Confederation of Italians in the World (CIM).
According to a tweet from the Presidency, the head of government said that the Caribbean nation offers a favorable environment for foreign investors, and its geographic location is a strategic factor for entry into an expanding market.
Investing in Cuba -he said- "is a good decision. It is a safe market, a country with total security, control of the Covid-19 pandemic, a high educational level, and a cultured and hospitable people."
Marrero, in addition, exposed the economic damages caused by the blockade imposed by the United States on the island and thanked the position assumed by Italy in the votes of the United Nations Organization against that hostile policy.
For his part, the Minister of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment, Rodrigo Malmierca, presented the business portfolio of the Caribbean nation, with 678 projects that prioritize food production, renewable energies, and the diversification of exports of goods and services.
It also showed the exportable offer of Cuban goods and services, where the biotechnology, tourism, and agri-food sectors stand out.
The CIM Congress began the day before with a thank you to the Cuban medical brigades that faced the Covid-19 pandemic in Italian regions.
