Non-Aligned Countries Movement business forum in Cuba
The 2nd Business Forum of the Non-Aligned Countries Movement (NAM) will start in this capital this weekend and tackle new ways to cooperate in trade, investments and finances.

About 200 businesspeople, officials and figures from 40 countries are expected to attend the event, to seek feasible alternatives for the development of the bloc's nation members, sources from the Cuba's Chamber of Commerce (CCC) confirmed.

CCC president Raul Becerra told Prensa Latina of the entity's preparation for the meeting, scheduled for November 2-3 in the Havana's Conference Center.

Becerra stated that this kind of business gathering is one of the strategies to facilitate managerial contact and analyze the most urgent problems of trade.

The 25th Havana International Fair (FIHAV 2007) will take place November 5-10 after the forum, so that many businesspeople from all over the world will coincide in this capital as a result of both events.

The prior NAM Business Forum was carried out in February 2003 on occasion of the Movement's Summit in Malaysia, whose aim was to foster economic and trade collaboration among the South.
