Cuba will show its exportable portfolio in Peru's business forumHAVANA, Cuba, Apr 5 (ACN) The main exportable offers of Cuba and its investment opportunities, mainly in the Special Mariel Development Zone (ZEDM), will be presented by the national delegation at the III Business Summit to be held in Peru on April 12 and 13.

In the context of the VIII Summit of the Americas, which will be attended for the second time by the Antillean nation with a broad representation of its civil society, the aforementioned business forum will be held with the participation of four Cuban businessmen.

Orlando Hernandez Guillen, president of the Chamber of Commerce of the Republic of Cuba and a member of that mission, told ACN that although it is a small delegation, it is made up of representatives of key areas of the island's economy.

He commented that medical services and the pharmaceutical and biotechnological sector, which are the main exportable items of the country to Latin America, will be present.

According to Hernández Guillén, the ZEDM completes the list as a reflection of the leading role that Cuba is currently giving to foreign investment to boost priority sectors such as industry, biotechnology, energy, tourism and telecommunications.

The head of the Chamber said that they will also show interests from other sectors, taking into account the broad portfolio of opportunities for attracting foreign capital.

He stressed that important companies from the hemisphere will be attending, which will be a propitious scenario for the Caribbean nation's will to increase its ties, from a commercial and investment point of view.

Recalling the last Summit of the Americas, Hernandez Guillen stressed that it was the first time that the Greater Antilles attended and did so as a conquered right, after being marginalized in those events.

Three years ago, a high-level Cuban delegation was in Panama at the meeting of Heads of State and Government, as a result of the strong and unanimous consensus of the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean.
