US entrepreneurs explore business opportunities in Cuba
A group of business people from the US State of Ohio are in Cuba looking for opportunities to foster bilateral trade in the event that the US economic, commercial and financial blockade of Cuba is lifted.
The trade mission, which is headed by Congressman Tim Ryan, met with Cuban authorities on the potential of the two sides to Exchange in key economic sectors, such as tourism, construction, agri-business and health.
The director of the North America Division at the Cuban Foreign Trade and Investment Ministry, Maria de la Luz B´Hamel, said that there are many opportunities to develop commerce between the two countries if the US blockade is lifted.
