Spain signs 'historic' transport deal with Cuba
18 May 2016 @ 12:29

CUBA and Spain have signed their first-ever, groundbreaking transport agreement which will allow the latter to work with its former colony in developing vital, and currently-lacking infrastructure.

Spanish minister for public works Ana Pastor returned yesterday (Monday) from La Habana, having signed the deal which covers management of road and rail transport, joint decision-making in designing shipping rules, and maintenance of trains, plus the use of airport management services.

It also extends to cooperation in financial structuring of road, rail, sea and air transport facilities, training and recruiting engineers and other professionals, and promoting technological development and innovation in the transport sector.

Spain's role in opening up Cuba to foreign investment has been key, Sra Pastor says, in aiding political talks and cooperation between Cuba and the European Union, and will continue to play a major part in ongoing international relations between the island and the old continent.
