According to a report from PL news agency, the buses will arrive shortly in the island where they will be incorporated into urban service.
Yutong, which is one of the leader bus companies in Asia, had previously sold 1,000 buses to Cuba that are already in service in all the provinces throughout the island.
The delivery was made by the President of Yutong Bus Company, Tang Yuxiang, to the Cuban ambassador in China, Carlos Miguel Pereira.
The official ceremony was held in the city of Zhengzhou, the capital of Hunan province, 600 kilometres south of Beijing. The act was attended by the deputy president of the Provincial Popular Assembly, Wang Mingyi, and 25 Cuban technicians who are being trained in the handling of the new equipment.
Pereira highlighted the strengthening of Cuba-China bilateral relations and noted the positive impact of the new buses on the Cuban economy which has suffered a brutal blockade imposed by successive US administrations over the last four decades.
Pereira also pointed out that Cuba-China bilateral relations are at their best and noted that the commerce between the two countries amounted to over 2 billion dollars in 2006.
