Agricultural Delegation from Louisiana, USA, Travels to Cuba

Washington, Jul 12 (Prensa Latina) Commissioner for Agriculture in Louisiana Mike Strain heads a commercial delegation that traveled today to Cuba to negotiate a potential export of food to this country.

The Cuban Embassy in the United States posted on its social networks the visit of Strain along with 94 representatives from the agricultural field, seeking to achieve a business trade with Cuba, valued at $400 million USD.

Strain said that it is important to land and be in Cuba because a very competitive scenario is coming.

He praised the quality of the rice grown in Louisiana and highlighted the favorable proximity of that region for the Cuban market, although he did not mentioned the economic, financial and commercial blockade set by the United States since 1962 and recently strengthened.
