Havana (VNA) – Vietnam signed several contracts, worth approximately 2 million USD in total, to export its products, mostly home appliances, to Cuba during the 33rd Havana International Fair (FIHAV 2015) from November 2-7.

Enterprises from Vietnam and Cuba also gathered in a workshop on the sidelines of the event to discuss their cooperation prospects.

On the occasion, Deputy Head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s Trade Promotion Agency Bui Thi Thanh An and Director of the Cuban Foreign Trade and Investment Promotion Centre (ProCuba) Roberto Verrier inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to boost collaboration between the two organisations.

Trade between the two countries will be facilitated by their strong political relations, the two governments’ support as well as mutual understanding between their people, An told the Vietnam News Agency (VNA)’s reporter.

She said it is a good time for Vietnamese firms to do business in not only Cuba but also the Latin America.
