    Cuba, S. Africa to diversify economic ties

    HAVANA, Oct. 23 (Xinhua) — Cuban and South African leaders on Friday
    pledged to strengthen and diversify the economic and trade relations
    between the two nations.

    During their talks, Cuban First Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel and his
    visiting South African counterpart, Cyril Ramaphosa, “reaffirmed the
    excellent state of bilateral relations as an expression of the
    historical ties of brotherhood that unite Cuba and South Africa,” an
    official statement said.

    Cuba and South Africa established diplomatic relations in 1994 after the
    fall of the apartheid regime in South Africa. Since then, bilateral
    cooperation has mainly focused on health and education.

    Ramaphosa, who started his three-day visit to Havana on Wednesday, leads
    a delegation of officials and businessmen from such sectors as
    telecommunications, tourism, mining, engineering, construction and
    manufacturing.

    Among them are also representatives from 15 entrepreneurial groups
    covering biopharmaceuticals, sugar, children’s goods, as well as
    household and personal hygiene products.

    On Thursday, Ramaphosa and his entourage participated in a business
    forum with their local counterparts to explore investment opportunities
    in the Caribbean island country.

    Ramaphosa said the forum promoted exchanges between the entrepreneurs
    from both countries and would help strengthen economic cooperation and
    explore new areas for mutually beneficial cooperation.

    In 2014, Havana and Pretoria signed an agreement to expand their trade,
    which reached 8.6 million U.S. dollars that year, according to Cuban
    official data.
