Spain is an important commercial partner of Cuba and is usually the state with the highest representation at the Havana International Fair, which, in its last edition of November 2019, was attended by more than 110 companies.

As stated during the meeting by the CEO of the public business entity ICEX Spain, Maria Peña, the foreign trade of her country with Cuba grows nine percentage points higher than the Spanish exchange with the rest of the world.

Spain, the third largest exporter to the Cuban market and its first investor, continues to implement new tools to support bilateral investment and trade, she said.
