US Small Business Administration Chief to visit Cuba
The head of the US Small Business Administration (SBA) Maria Contreras-Sweet will pay a working visit to Cuba June 20-21.
According to the Cuban Foreign Ministry, Contreras-Sweet will visit the Special Development Zone in western Mariel harbor and meet with Foreign Trade and Investment minister Rodrigo Malmierca, as well as with directives with the Domestic Trade and Social Security ministries.
The US official came to Cuba last March during the visit by US President Barack Obama.
Contreras-Sweet heads the SBA since April as member of Obama's cabinet. The entity offers support to some 28 million small businesses in the United States, which employ half the labor in the private sector.
