Dublin, September / 2019. Cuban Ambassador Hugo René Ramos Milanés held a working meeting with Minister Finian McGrath with the aim of examining common commitments to expand bilateral relations in the commercial and economic field.
Both parties found that several sectors have special potential to foster greater trade and cooperation between Ireland and Cuba and agreed to continue these efforts aimed at identifying new opportunities and potential actors. Eleanor Lanigan, assistant to Minister Mc Grath, also participated in the meeting.
During the recently concluded month of July and the beginning of August, Irish solidarity with Cuba has deployed numerous activities to denounce the resurgence of the economic, commercial and financial blockade of the United States government against Cuba and the implementation of the Helms Burton Act.
