HAVANA, Cuba, Oct 30 (ACN) Cuban exportable brands of the agro-alimentary sector were presented on Thursday to the Spanish market, as part of the Products and Services Promotion Day that is taking place in Havana, with the aim of boosting business and strengthening ties with foreign customers.
Ruben Ramos Arrieta, deputy chairman of the Cuban chamber of commerce, thanked Javier Gonzalez San Juan, Spain's advisory member in the Caribbean nation, for the trust that for years his country's entrepreneurs have had in the national market and which currently guides the economic and social development programs for the future.
He referred to agrifood sector as a priority in Cuba's Economic and Social Development Plan until 2030, because it is a food support and because of the contributions made in freely convertible currency to satisfy the needs of the population.
The representatives of Spanish branches and companies present at the meeting learned first-hand about the different programs conceived by the Agricultural Business Group, aimed mainly at increasing various crops, grain production and development of fruits such as mango and guava.
