The Brazilian official, who heads an official delegation of 20 businessmen from his country, mentioned the presence in Havana’s Pabexpo Exhibition Site of the food, mineral and coconut water, industrial, cosmetics and cleaning products, civil construction, footwear, fruit and other sectors.
This diversity of products, said Cavalcanti, shows that Brazil can aid Latin America in progressing in these sectors.
On the other hand, he pointed out the recent construction of a Brazil-Cuba cooperation agreement in small businesses, transferring technical knowledge and also strengthening commercial relations.
In this regard, Cavalcanti stressed that the idea is not only to sell Brazilian products in Cuba but also to identify Cuban products to take them to the South American nation.
The 10th edition of Expoaladi is being held in Havana, with the attendance of 364 importing and exporting companies from 13 Latin American nations, including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.
The event is the perfect setting for Cuban entities, whose commercial and financial operations are hampered by the intensified economic blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba.
The meeting focuses on the exchange of goods in the fields of agribusiness and livestock, food and beverages, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, textiles, clothing and footwear, plastics, containers and packaging, which play an important role in the regional economy.
