There’s a Cuba beyond the capital too: valleys of tobacco fields and limestone outcrops. And music – the country’s lifeblood. Everywhere pulses to the sounds of salsa. As always, our Trade Visits enable you to learn more about the country visited, enjoy its culture and explore potential business opportunities.
