Havana, Feb 1 (Prensa Latina) Cuba and Croatia will run from Feb 1-3 the 3rd Joint Commission for economic and commercial exchange.
The meeting is led by Ricardo Guerrero, Cuban vice minister for Foreign Investment and Economic Cooperation, and Vladimir Vrankovic, minister for Economy, Labor and Business of Croatia.
