Ulyanovsk region to establish twin-city relations with one of cities in Cuba

The agreement was reached in Moscow between the Governor Sergey Morozov and the Cuban Ambassador to Russia Gerardo Penalver Portal.


In recent years, the foreign trade turnover between the Ulyanovsk region and the Republic of Cuba has increased by 8.5 thanks to export. “Ulyanovsk large- and medium-sized business and entrepreneurs are very interested in Cuban projects. We have a number of examples of successful partnership. For example, Aviastar cooperates with Cubana Aviacion, a Cuban airline. We are ready to help with organization of aircraft deliveries to Cuba, as well as with their paint coating and maintenance. Automotive industry is another promising sphere. UAZ has already started participating in implementation of projects on car deliveries. Active negotiations with importers are underway and we are considering the possibility to organize car assembly in the Republic” – Sergey Morozov noted.

Next year, Cubans will celebrate the 60 anniversary. The exhibition dedicated to this event will take place in Ulyanovsk from 2 March to 3 April. During the meeting, participants also discussed cooperation between the Lenin Memorial and Che Guevara and Fidel Castro's museums, as well as creation of the Society of Friendship of Peoples. It is planned to establish twin-city relations between cities of the Ulyanovsk region and the Republic of Cuba.

At the end of the meeting, Mr. Gerardo Penalver Portal promised to visit the Ulyanovsk region.
