Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez will begin tomorrow an official visit to Germany.
During his stay, Rodríguez will hold official talks with his German counterpart, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, according to a press note released in this capital.
According to the text by the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs, originally published in its website, the visit by Rodríguez responds to an invitation by Steinmeier made while he was in Cuba last year.
In addition to the meeting with his German counterpart, the Cuban minister will develop a varied work program that includes meetings with local authorities, the note points out.
Germany is Europe’s leading source of tourists to Havana and the second globally only surpassed in 2015 by Canada.
In 2014 the trade between the nations reached the amount of 224 million euros (241 million dollars at the time).
Cuban exports to Berlin in that period totaled 32.6 million euros (35 million dollars), essentially products such as honey, cigars, rum and juices.
Meanwhile, Germany mostly sold Cuba machinery and wheat, by a value of 191.3 million euros (about 219 million dollars).
