Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, Cuban Minister of Foreign Affairs, held a meeting on Thursday with Juan Fernández Trigo, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Spain. He ends his diplomatic tour in Havana.
During the meeting, both government representatives reiterated the willingness to continue strengthening the constructive dialogue, to support the progress in political, economic, and cooperation relations, as reported by Rodríguez Parrilla on Twitter.
The leisure industry is one of the most dynamic sectors of the Cuban economy. The protagonism of the Spanish presence in it makes the European country the third commercial partner of the Island, behind Venezuela and China.
In terms of tourism, the hotel chains Meliá and Iberostar lead foreign companies in this sector in the largest of the Antilles and are also among the most outstanding among those of Hispanic capital in this country.
Cuba and Spain maintain diplomatic relations based on respect, dialogue, and collaboration in various spheres and the exchange in recent decades of the Heads of State of the two governments, both in Madrid and in Havana.
In this regard, in 2018, the Spanish Government President, Pedro Sánchez, paid an official visit to Cuba. In November 2019, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia toured the Cuban capital on the city's 500th anniversary.
