KINGSTON, Jamaica (JIS) -- Jamaica is moving to strengthen co-operation with Cuba on key industries, such as agriculture and manufacturing, which can benefit both nations.
Minister of industry, commerce, agriculture and fisheries, Karl Samuda, said Jamaica is seeking to learn from the experience of Cuba, which “has done remarkably well with limited resources.”
He noted as well that Cuba has stayed on the cutting edge of competition with the technology that they have introduced.
The minister was speaking on Wednesday at a luncheon he hosted for deputy minister of foreign trade and investment of Cuba, Ambassador Ileana Núñez Mordoche, in Kingston.
