March 21, 2017 |Detroit — Michigan and Cuba could be great business partners, Cuba’s ambassador to the U.S. said Tuesday.

“I think (like Cuba,) your main asset here is the people,” José Ramón Cabañas Rodríguez said after his keynote address to the Detroit Economic Club. “We probably should think about how we can compliment each other. No doubt agriculture is one field, but there are many others.”

Cabañas, who is based in Washington, D.C., and has been Cuba’s ambassador to the U.S. since 2015, spoke to a crowd of about 200 people at the club’s luncheon.

“I invite all of you to come to Cuba and see what we have done over the last few years,” he said.
