The island’s ambassador to Belgium, Yaira Jiménez, and Diana Rosa González, official of Tourism at the embassy, welcomed those present to an imaginary journey through the Antillean nation, recreated with images of some of its emblematic places, such as the Varadero resort and cities of Havana, Trinidad, Santiago de Cuba and Pinar del Río.
In a few words, González invited people to make a trip to a country that offers much more than sun and beach, due to its cultural and historical richness and the warm welcome of its people, a reality.
We invite you to discover our destiny, which awaits you open and with a smile, she underlined.
The Salon des Vacances in Brussels will be in session at the capital’s exhibition center until Sunday, with the endorsement of constituting the most important Belgian tourism fair for the general public.
In dialogue with Prensa Latina, Ambassador Jiménez considered the event a valuable space for Cuba in its purpose of promoting the recovery of a sector hit globally by the Covid-19 pandemic in the last two years.
The diplomat insisted on the wealth of the island as a heritage and cultural destination, in addition to its paradisiacal natural beauty.
It also represents a safe place in these times of pandemic, which constitutes an added value, said the ambassador, who recalled that almost the entire Cuban population is vaccinated against Covid-19 with its own immunogens, a scenario that facilitated the reactivation of international tourism in November.
A sign of the interest of the public, tour operators and local airlines of the Caribbean country was the inauguration on December 24 of the Brussels-Havana flight of TUI Fly Belgium, which was added to the company’s return to the famous resort of Varadero.
