HAVANA, Cuba, Nov 4 (ACN) Despite the global crisis generated by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Chamber of Commerce of Cuba (CCC) maintained the promotion of exportable items, assured an official of the entity.
Celia Labora, director of International Relations at CCC, told Prensa Latina that from March up to date, over 40 videoconferences have been held with chambers and promotional institutions from approximately 17 countries.
This allows Cuba's business and export opportunities to be transferred to those institutions, which in turn multiply them by sharing them with entrepreneurs from those nations, she noted.
It also implied that the Covid-19 pandemic came amid a structural crisis in the world economy, right on the brink of a trade war driven by the US, which not only attacked China's and Russia's markets but even its own allies.
A scenario aggravated for Cuba by the fierce US blockade against the country, she added.
In the face of that situation, the CCC looked for alternatives, she said, trade missions and fairs abroad in which Cuban companies participated changed, and they were developed through videoconferences with chambers and other counterpart international institutions.
