The President highlighted the high sensitivity of President Xi Jinping and the rest of his government to the difficulties faced by Cuba, the willingness to find ways to solve problems and undertake projects, and the firm commitment to its development.

According to him, he perceived an enormous commitment towards the island, all the conversations flowed with total transparency and sincerity, and the Chinese side showed receptivity and recognized the resilience of the Cuban people in the face of adversities.

He called to make good use of opportunities, remove obstacles to accelerate investments, be more serious and expand cooperation, mainly in biotechnology, energy with renewable sources, and informatization and cybersecurity. (Prensa Latina)
