Once again, the Havana International Trade Fair, in its 34th edition, reaffirms its status as Cuba and the Caribbean’s most important event of this kind, and one of the most representative in Latin America, said Rodrigo Malmierca Díaz, minister of Foreign Trade and Investment, upon inaugurating the fair yesterday, October 31, set to continue through November 4 at the ExpoCuba fairgrounds.

More than 3500 exhibitors

With Ricardo Cabrisas Ruiz, a Council of Ministers vice president and Minister of Economy and Planning on hand, Malmierca reported, “More than 3,500 exhibitors have been accredited in an area of 28,934 square meters, with businesspeople from 73 countries, making this edition the largest in recent years.”
