According to the vice president of the Political Consultative Conference of the Chinese People of Sichuan, Ouyang Zehua, the Asian province stands out for its tourist benefits, ¨we are aware that Matanzas also has a strong development in the sector, hence the interest in visiting it¨.
The possibility of carrying out tourism promotions of Matanzas in the Chinese city, with the purpose of showing its characteristics and encouraging the collaboration and exchange of experiences with Chinese businessmen, is an idea we want to work on, he said.
Zehua stressed that Sichuan is a paradise for the Chinese, many spend their days of rest there for natural treatments, a practice that could be adapted in Cuba, because of the similarity in terms of the growing rates of elderly people among its inhabitants.
The also director general of the Provincial Office of Financial Regulation and Supervision of the Chinese province said that Cubans and Chinese are characterized by voluntariness, strengthening alliances between brotherly socialist countries is very important and tourism becomes an extremely valuable line for the economy and the development of both peoples.
During the exchange, held at the provincial government headquarters, the official also inquired about issues such as the banking process that Cuba is carrying out and the procedures to promote foreign investment and showed his admiration for the conviction of Cubans to continue fighting against the blockade that the United States has imposed on the island for more than 60 years.
