The best exhibited products and stands will be awarded, those that were outstanding by their attractiveness and quality throughout the event, according to officials from the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Investment (MINCEX).
The Havana International Fair was held this year in the midst of a difficult economic scenario for the Caribbean island, marked by the tightening of the pressures and sanctions imposed by Washington, however, the event again gathered businessmen from some 60 countries, along with national exhibitors.
Rodrigo Malmierca Diaz, head of MINCEX, considered in this regard that this is a demonstration of trust of international business in the Cuban market. He also reiterated that Cuba will fulfill the commitments made, despite attempts by the United States to isolate the country and create problems for its economy.
Cuba presented its potential for the international market, including nickel, tobacco and rum, as well as derivatives from the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
It also announced the portfolio of investment opportunities for 2019-2020, whose amount exceeds 11.740 billion dollars, distributed in some 460 projects.
Most of the businesses in this portfolio are concentrated in strategic sectors for the country, such as tourism (116), oil (114), agro-food (81) and industries (32).
This year, for the first time, the Mariel Special Development Zone had its own stand, an example of the enclave's progress in preparing conditions and attracting foreign capital.
