Cuba looking for web partner

Cuba looking for web partner
Wednesday, 28 June 2006

The Cuban government wants to get on the world wide web big time and
it's looking for a private sector partner to help make it happen.

The objective is to use a web portal to facilitate the flow of
information to regional businesses and to increase trade through the use
of a virtual marketplace.

Cuban officials say consultants developed the first phase of the
multi-million dollar concept.

Trade Advisor to the Association of Caribbean States, Paola Vacca,
explains that a major challenge for the Cuban government is its
inability to finance the project.

Ms. Vacca says Caribbean companies need to garner a greater share of the
global trade market.
