Book Fair can boost China-Cuba relationsHAVANA, Cuba, May 9 (ACN) The Cuban ambassador to China, Miguel Ángel Ramírez, and Chinese Vice Minister Wu Shangzhi agreed that bilateral cultural ties will be expanded during the XXVII International Book Fair in Havana, according to a Prensa Latina news report.

Ramirez was received by Wu on Monday at the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television in the Chinese capital, Beijing.
Both leaders exchanged about the participation of the Asian country in the referred literary event to be held from February 1 to 11, 2018, in which China will be the guest country of honor.
As part of the delegation that accompanied the diplomat, were the vice president of the Cuban Book Institute (ICL) Juan Carlos Santana and the director of International Relations of that entity, Yailan Rodríguez, who discussed the excellent political and cultural relations between the two countries.
They also reviewed and advocated continuing the work related to China's participation in the upcoming book fair which, they considered, has a great connotation for both sides.
Wu was grateful for the Cuban leader's profound gesture by changing the start date of the fair, which coincided with the festivities of the Chinese lunar calendar, which will allow a greater participation of writers and publishers of the Asian country in the Antillean nation.
The Cuban ambassador forecasted the success of the fair which, in his opinion, will allow not only the Chinese literary culture, but also other cultural manifestations from this millenary nation.
Both sides highlighted the deep historical and cultural roots that characterize bilateral ties and are in an excellent state, according to the Cuban embassy.
Cuban experts say that Chinese culture is of great national value as it is considered an important component of the Cuban identity, due to the imprint bequeathed by the emigrants who came to Cuba from that territory from the nineteenth century until the beginning of the twentieth century.
