Spain and Cuba working together to progress management of their tourism models

Published on : Thursday, May 9, 2019

Visiting Spanish Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism Reyes Maroto said that the European nation and Cuba are hand in hand to progress the administration of their tourism models for greater quality and efficiency.

 

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the 2019 International Tourism Fair of Cuba, with Spain as the guest country of honor, Maroto said that the tourism industry is extremely important for development of both nations and is the chief source of foreign currency.

 

To quote Maroto, “We must work for a transformation that guarantees the highest profitability and sustainability in the medium and long term and allows us to maintain the position of world leadership that our destinations hold today. We want a model that adapts permanently, which is able to respond to an environment with constant changes.”
The minister said that many Spanish firms are currently expanding and wish to take part in the changes occurring in the Cuban tourism model.

 

“In Cuba we have an important presence of Spanish companies in the tourism industry that are agents which stimulate the economy. Their commitment and vocation for permanence here are very important. Today in Cuba, tourism can be a source of foreign currency to finance sustained economic development. In addition, it can impact other sectors such as agriculture, construction, transport, cultural heritage and trigger social inclusion,” Maroto added.

 

The minister rejected the recent activation of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act by U.S. President Donald Trump against Cuba.

 

Maroto said that Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez will mediate with the Trump administration to work out this issue and prevent “any kind of commercial war.”
