Raul de la Nuez, Cuban Foreign Trade Minister, said during the opening session of an International E-Commerce Workshop that Cuba is developing a strategy to encourage ecommerce.

At the workshop, which is one of the 14 activities on the agenda of the International Information Technology Fair, underway in Havana, De la Nuez said that Cuba is working on the legal basis and testing of a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), a set of hardware, software, policies, and procedures needed to creating, managing, storing, distributing, and revoking digital certificates.

De la Nuez added that the setting of showrooms online, as well as the development of software programs to update Cuban enterprises inventories, will contribute to the participation of Cuban commerce on the web.

At the workshop, the Minister stressed that the initiative is being developed by skilled specialists trained in Cuba during the past 50 years.

The experts attending the event will continue to debate on distribution logistics, informatics security, Customs in e-commerce and the training of specialists among other topics.

An example of how the system makes the Cuban people’s everyday life easier is the system Telebanca, through which they can pay for different services like utility bills, traffic fines and others.
