Havana.- Cuban authorities announced changes in the Island’s Tourism Ministry, including the appointment of a new minister this month.
The newly appointed minister is Manuel Marrero, who at the time of its designation was heading the Gaviota tourism group, one of the country’s major hotel chains.

Marrero replaced Ibrahim Ferradaz, who had held that post since the late 1990s. Ferradaz had previously been the minister of Foreign Investment and Economic Collaboration.

Cuba’s leisure industry is the fastest-growing and most efficient sector in the Caribbean Island’s economy, replacing the sugar industry as the country’s major hard currency earner.

The Gaviota group was founded on January 20, 1988, and since then, its hotel infrastructure has grown from barely 164 rooms to 7,146, most of which are in four- and five-star hotels
