Aruban and Cuban Governments have signed a cooperative agreement focusing on tourism for the two destinations, including the possibility of a cruise ship route that links the two countries and others in the southern Caribbean. The agreement was signed by Rodrigo Malmierca, Cuba’s Minister of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment and Otmar Uduber, Aruba’s Minister of Tourism, Transportation and Culture at Havana.“Aruba sees Cuba as a new destination, despite its existence for some time now, and it will soon see organizational changes that will contribute to making the country a more attractive destination to explore from the U.S. market,” Uduber said.According to Uduber, the agreement will open up new tourism possibilities for Aruba. The focus includes a dual destination program and the exchange of information on managing cruise facilities, marketing strategies to attract visitors and the timeshare sector. These initiatives will be driven through job platforms between the two countries.Cuba is also interested in Aruba’s experiences in the field of timeshare as well as new law proposals in respect to the management of accommodation. Aside from the topics of tourism and transportation, agriculture and culture were high on the agenda during the Minister Oduber’s visit to Havana.
