Cuban President Praises Shanghai Expo for Promoting Free Trade

SHANGHAI – Cuba’s President Miguel Diaz-Canel, who began his three-day visit to China on Tuesday, praised Beijing’s efforts to fight protectionist measures and promote free trade globally.

On the first day of his visit, Diaz-Canel visited the International Import Expo at Shanghai, which he said demonstrated China’s commitment to counter unilateral measures of protectionism that were against free trade.

The Shanghai expo was an opportunity for Cuba to showcase its trade potentials in Chinese and other international markets, he told EFE during his visit to the Cuba Pavilion at the expo.

“We have presented biotechnological and pharmaceutical products, an area in which we have (made) important developments,” he said, noting that China is Cuba’s second-largest trading partner after Venezuela.

Diaz-Canel, who arrived at the Shanghai exhibition with his wife Lis Cuesta Peraza, amid heavy security, also visited the Venezuelan pavilion, located right next to Cuba’s in the sprawling newly inaugurated National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai.

This is Diaz-Canel’s first state visit to China since he took office in April.

Sources from the Cuban delegation told EFE that Diaz-Canel would go to Beijing Wednesday where he is expected to meet with President Xi Jinping.

During his three-day visit, Diaz-Canela will also meet with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, Vice Premier Wang Yang and Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress Li Zhanshu.

In 2017, trade volume between China and cuba had amounted to $2 billion.
