Cuba and Uruguay seek to expand economic and trade links

Cuba and Uruguay are looking to expand and strengthen economic and commercial relations, stated Uruguay’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Luís Almagro, and Ricardo Cabrisas a Vice President of Cuba’s Council of Ministers.

In a meeting held at Revolution Palace, both officials agreed on the need to strengthen bilateral ties, raising them to the level of excellence at which political relations between both countries stand, reported PL.

Adequate conditions exist to further develop our relations, stated Cabrisas, after highlighting the good progress being made in agreements related to health, sports, the sugar industry and education.

Almagro described the development of these agreements as positive and expressed his country’s interest in studying Cuba’s experiences in issues such as business self-management, in addition to increasing cooperation in other fields.

He also reiterated that denouncing the economic blockade imposed by the U.S. on Cuba figures within his government’s political policy.

This is Almagro’s fourth visit to Cuba, accompanied by an experienced business delegation on the occasion of the Havana International Trade Fair (FIHAV 2014), the most important commercial fair in Cuba and the Caribbean.

Also present at the meeting was Pedro Pablo Prada, director of South America at the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Relations, in addition to Uruguayan ambassador to Cuba, Gerónimo Cardozo, and other officials from the Uruguayan Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

During their visit to the island, the Uruguayan delegation will also meet with Cuban Minister of Foreign Trade and Investment, Rodrigo Malmierca.
