Iran and Cuba signed an agreement based on which Iran will build a cement plant in this Latin American country.

In addition to the $200m agreement concluded for building the cement production plant, Iran has also agreed to construct a power plant aimed at generating at least 500 to 1,500 megawatts of electricity in this island of the Greater Antilles.

Also, the Islamic Republic will supply the raw materials and chemicals needed for rubber and plastic production in Cuba, the report quoted an official at the Islamic Republic’s Ministry of Industries and Mines as saying.
