The Chamber of Commerce would like to draw your attention to the economic and trade mission to Cuba that will be organised from August 26 to 30, 2015 by the bilateral Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture Belgium-Luxembourg-Africa-Caribbean-Pacific (CBL-ACP) and cordially invites you to participate.
The CBL-ACP Chamber of Commerce is an accredited member of the network of the Belgium-Luxembourg Chambers of Commerce Abroad network BLCCA1.
Since April 2015, a lot has happened in Cuba. Indeed, since President Obama removed Cuba from a list of state sponsors of terrorism, it has been confirmed that the island could be open for business.
Also, only one month later, in May 2015, French President Hollande visited Cuba with an important business delegation in order to well position European companies in the perspective of the lifting of the US Embargo on Cuba. This visit was also historical as it was the first visit of a head of state of a western country since the revolution.
The sectors of interest are various: infrastructure, food, health, environmentally friendly technologies, tourism, ...
With the prospect of the growing opportunities underlying the opening of the Cuban market, we encourage the companies interested in this market to participate to this economic mission.
Registered companies will have the opportunity to meet the local business community during pre-arranged B2B meetings and learn more about doing business in Cuba as well as about the Special Economic Zone of Mariel.
The BLCCA network promotes the economic interests of Belgium and Luxembourg abroad and assists companies of both countries in conquering new markets.
Mr. Guy Bultynck, Chairman, and Mr. Jacques Nyssen, Board Member & Responsible of the Caribbean Chapter, will accompany this mission.
The Permanent Delegate of the CBL-ACP Chamber in Havana, Mr. Benoit Croonenberghs, and his team, will coordinate the bilateral meetings for the participating companies.
If you want to participate, please fill in the registration form in appendix and send it back to the CBL-ACP before the 24th of July by e-mail at cbl.acp(at)skynet.be or cbl.acp2(at)skynet.be or by fax at the number +32 2 512 28 29.
