Spanish-Cuban Business Committee Meets to Boost Economic Ties in Havana

HAVANA – Spanish Secretary of State for Trade Jaime Garcia-Legaz will open on Thursday a new meeting of the Spanish-Cuban Business Committee in Havana to boost bilateral economic ties.

The meeting, organized by the chambers of commerce of both countries, is co-chaired by Spanish Chamber of Commerce vice president Modesto Piñeiro and his Cuban counterpart, Juan Bautista Gonzalez.

For its XXI meeting, the bilateral committee has invited more than 100 Spanish companies, including Acciona, Gas Natural-Fenosa and Gamesa.

The vice president of the Spanish Confederation of Business Organizations, Joaquim Gay de Montella, will attend the meeting.

In addition to opening the meeting, Garcia-Legaz is expected to meet in Havana with Cuban Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment Minister Rodrigo Malmierca; Tourism Minister Manuel Marrero Cruz; and Council of Ministers Vice President Ricardo Cabrisas.

The bilateral committee’s meeting comes at a time marked by the international and economic market opening of the island.

The meeting was preceded by the recent visit to Havana of Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo and Development Minister Ana Pastor, who met with Cuban officials, including President Raul Castro, on Monday.

Spain is Cuba’s third-largest trade partner, trailing only Venezuela and China, and No. 1 in Europe, with trade totaling more than 1 billion euros (about $1.1 billion) in 2015.
