French Ambassador stresses the good state of relations with CubaHAVANA, Cuba, Nov 8 (ACN) Patrice Paoli, French ambassador to Cuba, stated today in Havana that relations between Cuba and France are in good health, both politically and economically, as demonstrated by his country's rejection of US sanctions against Cuba, in particular the blockade, and the expansion of bilateral cooperation in various sectors.

This Thursday, at the 37th Havana International Fair, underway in Expocuba, was France's National Day, when Antonio Luis Carricarte, First Deputy Minister of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment (Mincex), signed a MOU to finance Cuban projects to combat climate change.
After the signing of this memorandum by Calogero Sciandra, director of the French Agency for Development, and Jose Fidel Santana, first vice-minister of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment, Paoli described the event and the presence of French businessmen at Fihav 2019 as signs of the interest in strengthening ties between the two countries.
The French ambassador recalled that his nation has an outstanding presence in sectors such as Cuban agriculture, health and transport (with the investment made at the international airport Jose Marti, in Havana), but they are looking for other ways or paths to expand collaboration.
Since the visits of then French President Francois Hollande to Cuba in 2015 and former Cuban President Raul Castro to Paris in 2016, bilateral relations have received a push, including agreements in fields such as finance, tourism, trade, agriculture, transport and development aid.
