Australia Negotiates More Trade and Investment with Cuba
Thursday, February 25, 2016

Havana, Feb 24 (Prensa Latina) The Government and business people from Australia expressed today their interest in broadening and diversifying trade links with Cuba and promoting investments in sectors like renewable energy, agriculture, stockbreeding, bippharmaceutic, minning and oil prospecting.
A bilateral business forum for these negotiations, held at the Hotel Nacional de Cuba, in this capital, was led by Andrew Robb, special envoy of the Australian Government, and Orlando Hernandez Guillen, Cuban Trade Minister.

Despite the giant geographical distance between the two nations, there is mutual empathy, and we have always admired the Cuban people for their capacity to cope on their own in any circumstance, said the head of the visiting delegation.

Robb, who is also the Trade Minister of Australia, said that the process for the normalization of relations between Cuba and the United States attracts the attention of the whole world, and the Australian traders are no exception; hence the large delegation accompanying him during this trip to Havana.

In his opinion, the recent reforms in the Cuban legislation and the updating of its economic model turn this Caribbean nation into a much more attractive destination for foreign direct investment.

He also highlighted the increase in Cuba's international reputation in financial terms, in the wake of renegotiation of debts contracted to major creditors, including the Paris Club, of which Australia is a member.

Robb confirmed his country's willingness to become an attractive investment partner to Cuba because of the possibilities to develop joint projects in tourism, agricultural and livestock activities and infrastructure related to this field, among others.

He also extolled Cuba's achievements in health, including research and production of drugs that don't exist anywhere.
