Cuba seeks more trade with Canada
TORONTO — Cuba's trade minister says the Caribbean nation is seeking
more business with Canada to bolster his country's economy during the
global economic crisis.
Raúl de la Nuez said Friday that he hopes to boost the volume of trade
between the two countries in the months ahead.
De la Nuez met this week with Canada's International Trade Minister
Stockwell Day and Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz.
A spokeswoman for Day says the two ministers spoke about Canada
supplanting Spain as Cuba's third-largest trading partner, and about
tourism opportunities between the two countries.
