The tourism Counselor at the Cuban Embassy in Italy, Madelen Gonzalez Pardo, represents Cuba at the event. She pointed out that the country's offers have attracted great interest.
The counselor noted the difficulty posed by the global pandemic of COVID-19 for tourism on the island, which meant that most operations relative to tourism were paralyzed. However, Gonzalez Pardo acknowledged Cuba's work in the arena, noting that the country worked during the pandemic to create new options for reopening. The official remarked that several hotels had been incorporated into the Cuban portfolio.
In this regard, she noted that the hotel infrastructure in Havana has expanded and now includes the Meliá, Kempinski and Iberostar chains.
