The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) has entered into discussion with the Chamber of Commerce in Cuba (CCC) to explore various opportunities of joint work to develop commercial activity and areas of economic cooperation between them.

The discussion was held recently between Mr. Abdullah Sultan Al Owais, Chairman of the SCCI, and Mr. Antonio Carricarte Corona, President of the CCC. The meeting took place at the representative office of the Sharjah Chamber participating in Expo 2020 Dubai.

Further, the two looked into the available investment opportunities while emphasizing the significance of bolstering communication mechanisms to organize mutual visits of business owners, missions and trade delegations.

The SCCI aims to exchange investments and strengthen the movement of commercial and tourism activity between Sharjah and Cuba, where the two countries aspire to enhance economic ties and get the most out of their great resources, Mr. Al Owais stated.

Further, Mr. Al Owais highlighted that the SCCI services support the private sector and the business environment in Sharjah and its role in developing commercial relations for Sharjah in particular and the UAE in general.

Mr. Corona applauded the UAE’s outstanding position at the regional and global levels, asserting his country’s eagerness to strengthen relations and raise the volume of trade exchange between the two countries while making way for businessmen to benefit from the investment opportunities in the two countries.

The importance of forging sustainable partnerships in the booming sectors, such as the health and renewable energy sectors, is due to the UAE’s global leadership in this field. “I hope the coming stage will see a quantum leap in the volume of economic, trade, tourism and investment relations for the benefit of the two friendly countries,” Mr. Corona added.
