Haiti wants to increase trade with Cuba

Haiti says it wants to strengthen its trade links with Cuba and has officially accepted an invitation to participate in the 35th International Fair of Havana (FIHAV 2017) to be held in that city later this year.

Commerce and Industry Minister Pierre Marie Du Meny said the October 30 to November 3 fair will provide Haitian companies with an opportunity of exposing their services, as had been the case last year when several Haitian companies – including Cannex, Caribbean Food, Carribex, Huileries Haitienne, Pasta Haiti, Sun Food, Tropic, Farmatrix – participated in the event.

In a message to the Cuban Ambassador to Haiti Luis Castillo, the minister said that Port-au-Prince “intends to strengthen its trade links with Cuba” and stressed the importance of breaking down the traditional obstacles to intra-regional trade in the Caribbean.
