The economic changes that has been implemented in this Caribbean island by decision of its Government and its people are facing the challenge of the large-scale arrival of multinational companies.

As part of its Strategic Plan of Economic Development and the consolidation and advancement of their social conquests, the revolution and Cuban workers introduced changes and innovations that allow foreign investment in sectors such as construction and related infrastructure, among others, the tourism activities.

Only in 2015 about 3.5 million tourists from around the world have enjoyed the great hospitality of the Cuban people, the wonders of nature and its unique public safety.
