La Paz, Bolivia.- Hundreds of visitors of different nationalities visited the Cuba stand on the occasion of the 2019 Diplomatic Gathering in Bolivia, in search of Cuban typical dishes and cocktails.
‘This is the first time we have held the diplomatic fair in which more than 20 countries and public companies from our country are participating,’ Bolivian Minister of Foreign Affairs Diego Pary stated on opening the international event.
Pary visited the Cuban stand located very close to that of Nicaragua, in Plaza Murillo, and held a lively exchange with Cuban Ambassador to Bolivia, Carlos Zamora.
The Bolivian minister stated that the 2019 Diplomatic Gathering is a sign that his country’s relations with different nations in Latin America, Europe and Asia, have been strengthened and consolidated.
Attended by Cuban embassy officials and members of the Association of Cuban Residents in Bolivia, the Caribbean island’s stand in the Bolivian capital attracted hundreds of people.
The desire to try typical dishes such as congri, yucca with mojo and roast pork, as well as the world-famous ‘mojito’ cocktail, and purchase cigars or handicrafts, led to long queues at the Cuban stand.
