Commercial relations between Cuba and Britain move forward
Published on January 16, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- Cuba and the United Kingdom made progress on Tuesday in Havana in the identification of new business and investment opportunities in sectors that are key for the two markets, such as renewable energy, agribusiness, tourism and biotechnology.

A business forum, which brought together entrepreneurs and officials from Cuba and the UK, was held on the occasion of the visit to the island of Brian Wilson, business ambassador of the United Kingdom Trade and Investment Office and president of the Havana Energy Company.

During the meeting, visitors learned more about the legal, labour and tax incentives offered by the Mariel special development area, as part of the policies promoted by Cuba to attract and encourage foreign capital investment in prioritized areas.

Pedro Pablo San Jorge, an executive of the ministry of foreign trade and investment, said that the UK occupies an important role in Cuba’s relations with nations of the European Union, with investments and projects of high impact in renewable energy, agribusiness and tourism.

Scheduled for Wednesday was the presentation by the National Potato Council and the Taylor Food group, about the processes of production, storage and commercialization of potatoes in Cuba.

On this subject, Wilson told the press that there are great possibilities for the establishment of bilateral cooperation agreements in this field.
