HAVANA TIMES, July 27 — Cuban President Raúl Castro headed this Monday the summit meeting of his country and Venezuela, held at a beach resort in the central province of Villa Clara, to boost bilateral relations with a view to the Economic Union.  The meeting ended with more than 100 signed projects that will allow for the expansion of bilateral cooperation and commercial exchange, reported IPS.  Venezuela is Cuba’s leading trade partner.
