Cuba aims to increase joint projects in tourism with Mexico, Cuban minister of Tourism Manuel Marrero said. He added that Cuba and Mexico are two countries which have more to offer in the tourist market of the Caribbean.
He made the announcements during his visit to Merida, Yucatan along with his Mexican counterpart Miguel de la Madrid to take part in the First Forum of Business Mexico-Cuba.
Marrero said that along with its proximity to Cuba, Mexico has large air links with Cuba and also the rising tourist rates and the new flights from China and Europe suggest the potential of tourist packages that include the two countries.
Marrero led the presentation before tour-operators, business people, executives from air companies, officers from the Government and Mexico City and the president of the Hotel and Motel Association of the Republic of Mexico.
In this regard, he said that the program to build 103,000 new hotel rooms in Cuba, an average of 2,500 each year, will be enhanced in the coming years.
