Cuba-US Business Round in Havana
The possible purchase of US food aimed for the Cuban family shopping basket is expected to be discussed, Alvarez told the Opciones weekly on-line edition.
This week, Agriculture Commissioner of North Dakota, Roger Johnson, led a US delegation of 18 entrepreneurs, who visited the Island and also met with Alimport.
Alvarez informed the visitors about the evolution of Cuban purchase of US food, which reached over $500 million in 2006.
He noted that his firm's main mission is to supply the family shopping basket of over 11 million Cubans with food.
Deals for about $100 million are expected to be cut during this round to begin Monday at the Havana-based Convention Center.
