This port is expected to be the country’s main trade hub, said Castro, who toured the Mariel Port together with former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva on Wednesday.
Regarding the port development plan, Lula stated: “I dream this port will contribute to Cuba, especially to the development of an important industrial zone.”
