Over 100 Vietnamese and Cuban business executives met in Havana on Sept. 24 to seek trade, business and investment opportunities and sign contracts.
Cabinet Minister Ricardo Cabrisas called on businesses from the two countries to further work in energy, agriculture, information technology, communication, bio-technology, transport, construction, fisheries and tourism.
Though Vietnam is Cuba’s second largest Asian trade partner, following China, the Cuban minister said there is still room for massive growth.
His view was shared by Minister of Construction Nguyen Hong Quan, who also pledged to support Cuban enterprises in conducting business in Vietnam.
The business meeting was part of an annual session held by the Vietnam-Cuba Intergovernmental Committee for Economic, Scientific and Technical Cooperation, of which Quan and Ricardo are Co-Chairs.
