Madrid, Apr 9 (Prensa Latina) A Cuban business delegation, headed by the president of the Chamber of Commerce, Antonio Carricarte, held a meeting today with his counterpart from Gipuzkoa, Basque Country, Javier Zubia, in the presence of more than twenty Spanish firms.

The occasion was favorable for exchanging information on the economic and commercial developments of the Basque Country and Cuba, according to official sources.

Besides Carricarte, Ainhoa Ondarzabal, director of the Basque Agency for Internationalization, and Saturnino Ornazabal, president of the Association of Basque Businessmen in Cuba, also took part in the meeting.
