The Cuban Deputy Minister of Foreign Trade and Investment Antonio Carricarte and Holland's ambassador to the island Norbert Braakhuis participated in the opening of the Pabellion.
According to Carricarte, although bilateral trade has slightly decreased in recent years, Holland has maintained its commitment with the development of the Caribbean nation.
An example of this is the number of Dutch business executives attending the FIHAV event aimed at identifying business opportunities and exploring ways to invest in Cuba in tune with the economic transformations underway in the country.
During the second day of the event, National United Kingdom Day was celebrated with the presence of a broad representation of business executives motivated by investment opportunities that Cuba offers in several sectors of its economy.
Timothy Cole, British ambassador to Havana assured that his country has special interest in investing on the island and the commercial ties to the country in the sectors of agriculture and tourism in addition to other projects present in the trade fair.
The British diplomat highlighted the large number of foreign companies present in FIHAV 2015, the largest in the last 15 years with the assistance of 900 companies from over 70 countries.
Great Britain has its representation in Cuba through new subsidiaries in addition to being the 3rd on the list in the world in the number of tourists to the island and second in Europe. / ACN.
