Havana, Oct 26.- Manuel Marrero, Prime Minister of Cuba, today highlighted the country's recognized experience in biotechnology, and the presence of technology companies in the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), which is a solid basis for collaboration between the Island and the block.

He also insisted that the prospects for expanding the Union's collaboration with third countries, approaches for greater dialogue with interstate and integration structures, including the BRICS, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and the Association of Southeastern Nations, are encouraging.
The Union is one of the structures that demonstrate that it is possible to move towards the creation of a more inclusive system, which takes into account the interests of countries with developing economies, Marrero stated.
Likewise, he reiterated the willingness to move forward with the celebration of the Third Session of the Joint Commission Cuba - Eurasian Economic Commission, for which it is expected to receive Mr. Glaziev and the members of the delegation who accompany him in Havana in December, to exchange and analyze the potential and perspectives of collaboration in trade and investment, and promote closer and more diverse exchange.
The premier assured that in order to expand economic, commercial, financial and cooperation ties, Cuba is committed to complying with the decisions and agreements of the Council session held this Thursday in the Kyrgyz Republic.
