(MENAFN) Cuba's ambassador to Turkey Luis Alberto Amoros Nunez suggested that Turkish investors could consider the country as a window to tap into the South-Central American market.
According to the Cuban envoy, "Turkish companies can participate at Mariel special economic development zone which enables them to enjoy a number of benefits such as tax incentives and selling not only to the Cuban market but also to exporting to many Latin American countries with drastic tariffs reductions based on regional agreements."
Bilateral trade volume between Cuba and Turkey, the envoy further stressed, is not reaching its full extent of potential.
Nunez noted "we are satisfied with the rise, but not satisfied with its level."
He further added "but there is an issue that does not allow trade to increase between two countries. Trading goods not directly but through European countries is among factors behind it."
