Cuban President Starts Three-Day Official Visit to China

BEIJING – Cuba’s President Miguel Diaz-Canel started his three-day official visit to China on Tuesday, where he is scheduled to attend the first China International Import Expo (CIIE) in Shanghai and meet with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, state news agency Xinhua reported.

Diaz-Canel arrived on Tuesday in Shanghai from Pyongyang, where he met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Monday, thereby starting his first state visit to China after taking office in April, Cuban state media reported.

Diaz-Canel’s agenda includes a visit to the CIIE, which was inaugurated Monday by the Chinese president in the presence of international leaders, including the presidents of Panama, Dominican Republic and El Salvador, Juan Carlos Varela, Danilo Medina and Salvador Sanchez Ceren, respectively.

During his stay in China, Diaz-Canel will meet with Xi, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, Vice Premier Wang Yang, and Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, Li Zhanshu.

China, Cuba’s second largest trading partner, hopes that Diaz-Canel’s visit will continue to strengthen the friendship and bilateral ties that unite both countries.

In 2017, the trade volume between the two nations was around $2 billion, and Cuba’s participation in the Expo, where it has a multisectoral representation, will allow it to show its commercial potential in the Chinese market.
