According to the Cuban Embassy here, the official will review the progress of plans in the national power generation system, the use of renewable energy sources, the supply of nickel and other minerals to the Chinese market, as well as the promotion of new projects of interest for Cuba.
His agenda also includes meetings with authorities from the National Energy Administration, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Commerce, and business counterparts from China.
Diaz-Canel paid a brief and very intense visit to China from November 24 to 25, which included official talks at which he reached agreements to boost bilateral cooperation.
Cuban Ambassador to China Carlos Miguel Pereira told Prensa Latina recently that this trip was the initial step to resume face-to-face contacts after three years of Covid-19 pandemic and they are expected to be reestablished since relations currently cover nearly all economic sectors.
On this regard, the Cuban diplomat explained that the intergovernmental joint commission should be held in Havana in 2023, and it would be a forum where the plans conceived to boost bilateral trade would be projected and followed up.
