Louisiana starts a trade mission to Cuba
In an effort to find opportunities to export agricultural goods to Cuba, Louisiana´s Agriculture Commissioner Mike Strain is heading a business mission to the island.
According to the commissioner possible trade relations with Cuba would translate into 300 or 400 million dollars a year for Louisiana.
Strain said that Louisiana would predominately be exporting rice, soybeans, wheat, poultry and more.
“There are so many opportunities there. They need fertilizers, they need everything and we are the logical and most logistical port. The Port of New Orleans, the Port of Baton Rouge, the Port of Lake Charles to make that happen,” said the US official as cited by local media.
