During the closing session of the Course on the Introduction to International Business Law, at the Aula Magna of the University of Havana (UH), the president called to renew the ways of doing business and overcoming mistakes, inconsistencies and lack of knowledge that sometimes affect this activity.
The head of State commented that one of the priorities for the country is training jurists, an effort in which the Ministries of Justice, Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment, the Chamber of Commerce (CCC), the UH, among other organizations and institutions, have participated.
The National Law Award winner and president of the Cuban Court of International Commercial Arbitration of the CCC, Dr. Rodolfo Davalos, said that the objectives of the course were to learn about the global business scenario, the main stockholders, means of dispute resolution, coordination of adequate advice and minimum requirements to face a conflict.
Davalos insisted that the blockade imposed by the United States is the most harmful legal phenomenon against Cuba and its people, which imposes the need to study comparative law, the knowledge of other legal systems and “to face the problems involved in the relationship with extra-national elements.”
Moreover, he ratified that this is only a first step to continue developing training actions on the subject.
On behalf of the graduates, Max Borrero, legal advisor of the Business Group of the Biotechnological and Pharmaceutical Industries of Cuba (BioCubaFarma), noted the importance of training to form a solid base that contributes to the performance of jurists, in the context of an economy increasingly in need of the development of foreign trade and foreign investment.
