In his official Twitter account, the president pointed out that the tour made it possible to verify the seriousness and rigour with which firms from that country work in Havana, and recalled that China and Cuba are united by “intimate and historical ties.”
The day before, the head of state learned about the preparations to launch the technological reconversion project in the Havana Graphic Company, which is being advanced as part of a loan from the Asian Government.
The initiative will allow the printing of newspapers in the west of the island, as well as books, magazines, notebooks and other resources.
Díaz-Canel also visited the branch of the Yutong company, where he became interested in the manufacture and use of hybrid buses in Cuba. The president thanked the company for its support, which has been present in the country since 2005, as they have become the main suppliers of equipment for the development of public transport.
Recently, the ambassador of Havana in China, Carlos Miguel Pereira, said in an interview with Prensa Latina there is practically no area of ties without experiencing a dynamic fluid growth supported by a high level of communication.
China consolidates itself as Cuba’s commercial partner, second in origin of imports and the main destination of its exports of products such as rum, tobacco, sugar and coffee, among others, added the diplomat.
