In addition to visiting some emblematic places of Irish history and culture, Diaz-Canel held talks with President Michael Higgins and Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.
While Cuba and Ireland's bilateral trade is currently at a low level, authorities of both countries talked about the importance of expanding their economic relations to the fields of agriculture, renewable energy sources, biotechnology, education, culture, sports and tourism.
On the political realm, Diaz-Canel thanked Ireland for supporting the resolution against the U.S. blockade, a document which Cuba presents at the United Nations General Assembly every year.
The Cuban President closed his activities with meetings with compatriots residing in Ireland and with members of the Irish solidarity movement with the Caribbean island.
