The Syrian media highlights today the signing of a memorandum of understanding to strengthen economic and trade relations with Cuba.
The memorandum was signed by the chambers of commerce of the two countries as part of the 34th International Fair of Havana, said the media in Syria.
Samer Khalil, Syrian Deputy Minister of Economy and Foreign Trade, quoted by sources, said that this step is an incentive to increase bilateral relations.
The reports mentioned that president of the Chamber of Commerce of Cuba Orlando Hernandez said that this memorandum will identify the basic needs and what the Cuban market requires and also that Syrian businesspeople will be offered all kinds of services.
The Syrian media said the signing will also be a way to oppose the unfair blockade and unilateral economic measures against Cuba and Syria set up by the United States and its allies.
The Syrian delegation, led by Khalil, also discussed the prospects for economic and trade cooperation with deputy minister of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment of Cuba Ileana Nuñez Mordoche.
