At a meeting with the Russian delegation Castro spoke about the plans to develop the transport network in Cuba. He noted that Cuba may purchase Russian buses, trucks and trains, Alyoshin emphasized.

During the meeting the sides reached agreement that the delegation of the Cuban transport ministry will arrive in Moscow soon. This delegation will consider the possibilities of concluding commercial contracts on supplies of the Russian machinery in the Caribbean country. According to Alyoshin, some offers in the energy industry were also discussed. Havana is interested in the development of the energy industry.
