Big Russian companies and organisations will take part in the 37th FIHAV International Fair in Havana, Cuba, on November 4-8, 2019. The Russian pavilion is organised by Russian Export Center AO together with Expocentre AO and supported of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Russia.

The Russian pavilion presents products of 12 companies and enterprises on the area exceeding 200 square metres. The participants include telecom software and hardware manufacturers and suppliers of vehicles, road, construction, and special machines (including electric vehicles) and their units and spares.

In addition, the visitors will be informed about the services of Russian transportation and logistics companies, and enterprises designing, renovating and modernising manufacturing and mining-and-metallurgical plants in the field of heavy machine building, metallurgy, foundry, rolling, cement, and other industries.

The Russian pavilion in Havana will be supplemented with a broad associated programme dedicated to investment projects, the Cuban market’s potential for Russian companies, and interaction between banking systems of the two countries. There will be round tables on various issues of economic cooperation. A series of B2B meetings with potential Cuban partners has been arranged specially for the Russian participants.

Specialists have noted diversity of the exhibition and described it as a gateway to the markets of Cuba and other Latin American countries. Nowadays, this is the most prestigious exhibition and fair of the region.

Trade and economic relations between Russia and Cuba have intensified lately. The decline in bilateral trade turnover, which lasted for six years, was finally overcome.  Trade grew 82% to over $250 million.

The Cuban administration seeks to modernise the national economy. This will be achieved primarily by drawing foreign capital, technologies, and best available managerial practices. Russia is a major partner of Cuba in the field of modernisation of its industrial enterprises.  The existent and pending contracts put Russia on the first place in terms of potential cooperation with Cuba in the material area.

Machine building, oil-and-gas and chemical industries, communications, marine transport, shipbuilding, bio technologies, atomic energy, green energy, and power grids are promising cooperation areas of Russian companies.

Russia and Cuba are effectively building strategic partnership. They are interacting in a variety of areas. The interaction is based on the long-standing historical friendship, mutual respect, and interest.

Russian-Cuban relations are future oriented, which is proven by extensive support on the summit political level and active participation of Russian companies in the implementation of Cuba’s socioeconomic development plans for the period until 2030.

Cuban partners view Russia as a traditional and major participant in the Havana International Fair. Both sides are sure that FIHAV 2019 will promote the appearance of new commercial projects and foster comprehensive development of trade and economic cooperation between our countries.
