Cuba and Mogilev eager to set up joint enterprise producing lifts

Cuba and the Belarusian city of Mogilev are interested in setting up a joint enterprise to produce lifts together. The statement was made by Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Cuba to Belarus Alfredo Nieves Portuondo at the meeting with the Chairman of Mogilev City Executive Committee Vladimir Tsumarev.

“We discovered Mogilev last year, however, there have already been reached certain arrangements,” noted Alfredo Nieves Portuondo. “In particular, the possibility of setting up a joint venture to assemble lifts in Cuba has been discussed. Several Cuban companies are interested in cooperation with JSC Mogilevliftmash. The merchandise could be sold not only in Cuba but also at the markets of Central and South America, Caribbean Sea countries”.

It is too early to talk about the prospects of promoting partnership relations between Mogilev and Cuba in the sphere of textile industry, the diplomat believes. “Belarus is known to have a well-developed textile industry, but we haven’t heard anything about Mogilev-based enterprises yet,” specified Alfredo Nieves Portuondo. “After having visited JSC Mogotex and Lenta we will send the information we have acquired to Cuba. Once the matter has been studied by our specialists and businessmen, the respective decisions can be taken”. Yet the Ambassador remarked that Cuba is interested in buying Belarusian fabrics and ready-made textile products and in buying spare parts for previously purchased Belarusian buses and agricultural machines. Cuba is also interested in having Cubans trained at Mogilev universities.

Cultural relations between Belarus and Cuba are another important aspect. This aspect is particularly important this year as Mogilev has been chosen the cultural capital of Belarus and the Commonwealth of Independent States. As part of the large-scale project it has been decided to hold the days of culture of various countries in Mogilev. On 30 May, Mogilev hosts a Cuban Culture Day. The visit of the Cuban Ambassador had been timed to this event.
