Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies arrived in Cuba on Saturday to

meet with the country's deputy president Esteban Lazo, his ministers and

several business people, the department said.

Department spokesman Sidwell Medupe said they hoped the visit would

result in strengthened ties with the Caribbean nation.

Davies would also attend the opening of the 30th Havana International

Fair on Sunday, Medupe said.

Several South African companies were exhibiting at the business fair and

Davies would officially open the South African Pavilion.

Of the 216 destinations for South Africa's exports globally, Cuba ranked

83rd in 2011.

Earlier this year, Cuba and South Africa entered into a R350 million

economic assistance package agreement.

The minister said he believed the package would "go a long way in

boosting economic relations".

He was expected to stay in Cuba until Wednesday and then travel to

Jamaica and Brazil. – Sapa
