Havana (VNA) – Cuba will buy 700,000 tonnes of cassava worth 100 million USD from the US in 2006, making the island country fifth among Latin American cassava importers from US companies.
An agreement to this effect was signed in Havana on January 17 between the Cuba Food Import Company (Alimport) and several US food companies.
Cuba has bought more than 2 million tonnes of cassava from US companies since December 2001, Alimport president Pedro Alvarez told reporters after the signing ceremony.
Chairman of the US Food Council David Anderson, who is on a visit to Cuba, said that the signing would create a chance for US companies to sell food to Cuba in larger amounts in the future.–Enditem
