Cuba shows progress in foreign trade



Havana, Apr 9.- Despite adverse circumstances for the national economy, Cuba's foreign trade showed progress in terms of its efforts, with 67 businesses with foreign capital from 2019 to 2020, it was reported today.

A report published in the Granma newspaper adds that the approval of these businesses benefits sectors such as tourism, construction, mining and industry.

These advances occur despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the pressures of the United States Government against this country in terms of economy, finance and trade, he says.

It adds that during the past calendar, through the Single Window for Foreign Trade (Vuinex), 186 procedures were carried out, while receiving 80 interests from potential investors.

The subjects of these proposals covered the aforementioned sectors and transportation, renewable sources of energy, food production, professional services, health and culture.

In order to expand the opportunities to access the Cuban portfolio of opportunities, this week began, in what can be called a trial period, the completion of Vuinex online procedures.

The head of the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment, Rodrigo Malmierca, timely highlighted the importance of Vuinex as a very useful instrument, in line with the government's efforts to improve its insertion in the international market. (Text and photo: PL)
