Cuba, Countries by TradeCuba, Countries by Trade


The usual images that many tourists have before going to this country is it may be a very dangerous place and one shoudno visit it.But only if one explores this country will ne know actually what the country has to offer.Once you get under the veneer of Havana, it is a truth that surprised me about Cuba: it's a country of paradoxes and ironies with conflicting political and economic policies; its people are very warm and friendly and its people are resilient, warm, open and genuine, despite the clear and obvious struggles they have in daily life; and their culture is homogeneous, despite its multiracial ethnicity.

Business and Economy

The government of Cuba is always on a continuous effort trying to balance the need for economic loosening against a desire for firm political control.The political control on this country has been quite a lot and the government has been trying its best to come over that and give the best to the citizens of this country. It has undertaken limited reforms to increase enterprise efficiency and alleviate serious shortages of food, consumer goods, and services. The resources that they have are mainly agriculture and that includes the manufacture of sugar and the sugar industries are very famous and this country is therefore known as “The Sugar Bowl of the world”
