Beijing, Nov 13 (RHC) Companies from China and Cuba paved the way for the commercialization of coffee, honey and charcoal from the Caribbean nation, after signing letters of intent on the subject.
Aner Pérez, representative of the company Coratur S.A., explained that the documents foresee the possibility of exporting these products to this market by Cubaexport.
Two of them were signed in Shanghai during a recent exhibition of goods and services of the Antillean state. One was with China National Huayen Energy to sell coffee brands such as Serrano and Turquino, and Apisun honey; and another with IDON International Trading would be to introduce green and roasted coffee.
A third text,” said Pérez, “was signed a little earlier with Xiamen Carisol and aims to incorporate first and second quality charcoal, as well as charcoal.
The official highlighted the importance of the memorandums because it shows the interest of local companies in expanding their business prospects with these exportable items.
“They break with the real possibility of making future sales to China and the interest of businessmen in buying these products. The intention is to move forward, break the ice and study the possibilities of introducing them here,” he said.
He indicated that Cubaexport has already begun to contact with the possible clients in order to specify commercial details and to clear doubts of both parts before making the business.
The representative of Coratur S.A. sees in the commercial relationship a promising future, since the promotional work allowed to create the conditions to gradually increase the presence of articles coming from the largest of the Antilles.
Cuba seeks to diversify and ensure new destinations for its goods and services, both traditional and new.
With this goal and that of better positioning its commercial offer in development areas and technological parks in China, the Caribbean nation participated in the first and second International Import Exhibition held in Shanghai in November 2018 and 2019, respectively.
In both editions it attended with dozens of companies in areas such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, tourism, education and culture, along with those of tobacco and rum, emblems of its exportable portfolio.
