A significant proof of the support to the Largest of the Antilles in the face of the intensification of the US blockade with the activation of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, is the welcome given by the regional business community to the 16th edition of the Expocaribe Trade Fair, which from June 19 to 22 will be held at the Heredia cultural complex in Santiago de Cuba.
Orlando Hernandez Guillen, president of the Chamber of Commerce of Cuba, informed Tuesday in a press conference that 28 companies from 12 countries and 130 national entities have contracted spaces to exhibit their products and services and, additionally, dozens of visiting businessmen are expected to attend in the form of hand luggage.
The fact that the response to the call for this meeting is so favorable is yet another example that the world is with Cuba, said the head of the Chamber, specifying that each territory will show its consolidated exportable products and there will be an opportunity to promote sales of new items, says Juventud Rebelde.
Ileana Núñez Mordoche, deputy minister of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment, explained that the second largest Cuban stock exchange is being resumed in the context of the 25th anniversary of the Association of Caribbean States, and according to the program, the highlight of the event will be the 12th Business Forum of the Grand Caribbean.
This essential space will allow the promotion of trade, foreign investment and the exchange of knowledge on issues of interest to the countries of the region in multiple spheres from promoting best practices, experiences and prospects for sustainable development.
Expocaribe 2019 offers the opportunity for Caribbean entrepreneurs to exhibit and promote their products and services, and to exchange with their counterparts from different sectors of the Cuban and regional economy, with a view to identifying joint business opportunities in order to promote economic and commercial complementarity among our countries.
