Many of the companies participating in the event are represented on the island, and others are interested in selling and exploring the possibilities of insertion in the nation, which expresses the relevance that has reached the International Wine Festival, he said.
The vice president of the Chamber of Commerce assured that the activities that are developed will allow national companies and visitors to evaluate the maturity that the wine sector in Cuba is reaching, at the service of the tourism industry.
