Honduran Businessmen Approve Treaty with Cuba

The Honduran Private Enterprise Council sees an opportunity to expand export markets in the agreement.

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

COHEP Vice President, Oscar Galeano, said in statements to La Trubuna that "Cuba has characteristics somewhat different from ours, but there is always the chance to explore them and determine the potential degree of consumer purchasing power and competitive advantages."

He also referred to the logistical difficulties that exist for developing trade between Cuba and Honduras since there are currently no regular air or shipping routes between the two countries. He also highlighted the inconvenience of the lack of private enterprises on the island that would be an issue when it comes time to negotiate.
