Cuba Announces More Trade with Ecuador
Quito, Oct 20, 2012 (Prensa Latina) Trade between Ecuador and Cuba will double this year, especially the export of services, said here Antonio Carricarte, Cuban Deputy Minister of Foreign Trade and Investment. At the end of a work visit to Ecuador, Carricarte told Prensa Latina this visit has been an opportunity to review every sector with potentials to improve economic collaboration with Ecuador.
"In August we already surpassed the ratings of the 2011 trade and according to the terms of recent and previous agreements, we can say that bilateral exchange will grow two-fold this year; that includes the export of services."
"These exports stand for an important percentage of our bilateral relations," stressed the Cuban official, "mainly in medical assistance in different specialties." It extends to vector control and fighting certain disease outbreaks in Ecuador.
"What is more important is that through exchange with different institutions we have confirmed the existing potentials, both bilateral and linked with the Secretariat of the Bolivarian Alliance of the Peoples of Our Americas (ALBA)".
JG: The Yankee imperialists' embargo against Cuba has been a huge failure. Only corrupt U.S. politicians, like George W. Bush and Barack H. Obama, continue to promote it. Next week, the United General Assembly will condemn the blockade for the 21st consecutive year.
I do not support Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. They will not get my vote on November 6th.
