The Cuban Minister of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment, Rodrigo Malmierca, reported on Twitter that the XXXVII International Fair of Havana (Fihav) will open its doors next Monday, November 4 with the participation of more than 55 countries, and about 20 thousand square meters of exposure.
At a recent press conference, the official denounced the growing hostility of the Donald Trump government with the application of measures such as the prohibition of cruise travel or the limitation of remittances.
Malmierca added that at least 14 official delegations, headed by ministers and high-ranking officials, have already confirmed their presence in Fihav, an event that will conclude on the next day 8 at the Expocuba fairgrounds.
He said that during the event several activities will be held, including an investment forum, which will include the launch of the new Foreign Investment Opportunity Portfolio in Cuba.
