Spanish Regional Leader Upbeat on Cuba’s Prospects

HAVANA – The leader of Spain’s Galicia region said on Thursday that he is “very optimistic” about Cuba’s efforts to open up and modernize its socialist economy.

“I am very optimistic that this updating of economic model is going to lead to higher levels of welfare, progress,” Alberto Nuñez Feijoo said in Havana.

The Galician regional president began his second official visit to Cuba by joining Cuban Chamber of Commerce head Orlando Hernandez for the inauguration of the opening of the Cuba-Galicia Economic Forum.

“We have been in Cuba over the past 70 years and we want to be in Cuba over the next 70 years. We want to be in Cuba as proof that the Cuba of today is at an economic crossroads similar to that Galicia experienced when it internationalized its economy and entered the economy of the European Union,” Nuñez Feijoo said.

The president, who was accompanied to Cuba by a delegation of business executives, offered the benefit of Galicia’s expertise and experience in areas such as shipbuilding, textiles, energy, and agriculture and food processing.
