Cuba has reached today the figure of 4 million foreign visitors, despite the continued restrictions imposed by Donald Trump's administration, which directly affect that branch of the national economy, Manuel Marrero Cruz, Cuban minister of Tourism, announced on Twitter.
The tightening of the hostility of the US economic, commercial and financial blockade has been reflected in the elimination of Cuban hotel installations from online search systems, the ban on cruise ships entering Cuban bays, as well as the flight reduction from US territory to Cuba.
However, last November, Marrero Cruz declared that despite these difficulties, tourism does not stop because "our government has kept the priority in the investment processes, we continue repairing hotels and building others, to finish this year some 4.000 rooms and by 2020 will be executed another 4.200.
Although hundreds of people from that country cannot visit Cuba due to the extraterritoriality of White House policy, it is important to mention that there are nations where interest in the Caribbean island continues to rise.
This is the case of the Russian Federation, Portugal, Argentina and in the case of China, Cuba has appointed a tourism advisor in the early 2020 at the Havana embassy to Beijing and the declaration of 2021 as the year of tourist exchange between the two nations, thus motivating the Chinese to visit the island.
The meddling policy of the Washington administration constitutes the main hurdle that prevents this figure of 4 million international visitors from being higher, and its damage to the tourist sector amounts to some 38.7 billion dollars, with the US one most affected by the restrictions of its own government.
