Cuba and China strengthen economic relations

BEIJING: Council of Ministers Vice President Marino Murillo Jorge, head of the implementation commission responsible for the guidelines approved at the 6th Communist Party Congress, met in Beijing with Chinese Vice Premier Hui Liangyu to discuss the progress of bilateral economic relations and other shared interests.

Murillo’s seven-day working visit included meetings with Li Changchun, member of the permanent commission of the Political Bureau of the Chinese Communist Party, and Agriculture Minister Han Changfu, the Chinese Information Centre reports.

Hong Lei, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson, recalled that “Cuba was the first Latin American country to establish relations with the People’s Republic of China, which developed without major obstacles and with exchanges at the highest level, which increased mutual confidence. We wish to promote this cooperation even more,” Telesur reported.

Murillo emphasised Cuba’s disposition to develop new projects and exchanges with China in the area of science and technology, agro-industrial investment and trade, following on from an agreement made in the 19th Intergovernmental Commission to promote and expand agricultural cooperation and speed up respective food imports and exports.
