Today morning the Chamber President Mr. Richard Ngatia hosted the ambassador of Cuba to Kenya H.E. Juan Manuel Rodriquez. The Ambassador was accompanied by 3rd Secretary Ms. Edisleydi Curbelo Garcia and Mr. Mwazala of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Cuba Desk.
The Ambassador invited the Kenya business community to participate in the Fihav – Havana International Fair 2022 scheduled to take place on the 14th -18th November 2022 in Havana, Cuba. The Trade Fair is open to all sectors and is expected to attract participants from all over the world.
Kenya and Cuba enjoy cordial bilateral cooperation, and have progressed beneficial cooperation in the healthcare sector. In 2017 the two countries implemented an exchange programme that saw Cuban doctors come to work in Kenya County hospitals while Kenyan doctors were sent to Cuba for specialized training. With both countries being members of the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS), there is opportunity to improve cooperation and partnership in healthcare, tourism, education, renewable energy and ICT sectors.
