Cuba Seeks Business Ties in South Korea

HAVANA TIMES — A delegation of the Cuban government led by Noel Vazquez Perez, the head of the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment, arrived in South Korea on Monday for a five-day visit, reported AFP.

“The Cuban representatives are here to speak solely about commerce,” said South Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman Cho Byung-Je.

Havana has been importing parts for vehicles and power generators from South Korea through intermediaries, but now it wants to re-establish direct business contacts and expand imports, reported the newspaper Chosun Ilbo, quoting a source at the Foreign Ministry.

This is an unprecedented event ever since the Asian country severed ties with the island after the island’s revolutionary victory in 1959.

  • señor vazquez should have picked up a few hundred thousand samsung tablets while he was in south korea for sale to the tourists. they cost more than ipads and so must be good and they are very popular. he would have got a discount for a big order. korean turquoise jewelry would be popular wiith the tourists.
