With encouraging data, such as the 7 percent growth in the arrival of international visitors in the first quarter of 2019, the 39th International Tourism Fair of Cuba opens today in Havana.
The President of the Government of Havana, Reynaldo García, and the Minister of Tourism, Manuel Marero, will welcome in Havana Convention Center. They will discuss the novelties and development perspectives of the sector, which is strategic for the national economy.
María Reyes Maroto, head of Industry, Commerce and Tourism of Spain -guest of honor- will also take part, who has already reaffirmed that there is a present and a future for the Iberian nation’s investments in Cuba.
On the activation by Donald Trump of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act – of an extraterritorial nature – he reiterated that his government will adopt mechanisms to defend the interests of Spanish businessmen.
Havana, a pleasant hostess
From today until Saturday the International Tourism Fair of Cuba will be installed in the historical military complex Morro-Cabaña, part of the system of fortifications of Havana declared by UNESCO Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Beyond the growth of its hotel industry and complementary services, this seductive city -about to reach its 500 years of existence- has historical, cultural and patrimonial values that attract its guests.
Eusebio Leal, Historian of Havana, will speak about these essences today at the opening of FITCUBA 2019, which has 2,000 participants from 40 countries, representing hotel chains, travel agencies and tour operators, among others.
Despite Trump’s aggressive escalation in its attempt to suffocate Cuba, the goal of 5 million visitors this year is maintained, and the fair will contribute to that goal.
