The Prime Minister of Cuba, Manuel Marrero, will arrive in China on an official visit which includes meetings with the country's main authorities, and business exchanges.

As part of an agenda that will extend until November 9th, Marrero will participate in the opening on November 5th of the 6th China International Import Expo (CIIE 2023) in Shanghai, as well as in business forums and meetings with Chinese businessmen.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs pointed out, on Wednesday, the relevance of this visit in the context of strengthening bilateral relations. According to spokesman Wang Wenbin, both countries “are good friends walking together and good comrades with common goals.”

“China is willing to work with Cuba to take this visit as an opportunity to deepen the special friendly relations between China and Cuba in the new era and jointly build a China-Cuba community with a shared future,” he stated.

Wang went on to add that Marrero’s stay gives continuity to high-level exchanges between the two nations, and mentioned in particular the latest meetings between Presidents Miguel Díaz-Canel and Xi Jinping.

China and Cuba recently held the 30th session of the Intergovernmental Commission, which validated the special nature of bilateral ties.

Cuban deputy Prime Minister Ricardo Cabrisas made a working visit to China during which he co-chaired the Commission and signed cooperation agreements in various sectors, including “cooperation in prioritized sectors of mutual interest, such as biotechnology, renewable energy sources, food production, tourism, info communications, the sugar industry, transportation and commerce, among others,” according to the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
