MIAMI, United States. – The Cuban regime’s prime minister, Manuel Marrero Cruz, met on August 31st with Bernold O. Schroeder, president of the management board of the Kempinski luxury hotel chain, to discuss new “business opportunities” in the island.
“I held a meeting with Mr. Bernold O. Schroeder, president of the Kempinski luxury hotel chain’s management board, where we exchanged information about business opportunities in our country,” stated Marrero on his Twitter account.
Marrero Cruz’s publication generated wide criticism on social media. Several users questioned the Cuban regime’s investment in the tourism sector in detriment of the domestic infrastructure.
“Luxury hotels and cities in ruins. Truly, this government is not to be believed,” stated a female user identified as cece_22.
“They are doing exactly what they like. The people, who are hungry and oppressed, can wait and remain homeless. Hotels are the priority, not because they generate money to invest in the country, but because the money goes into their pockets,” stated a Twitter user identified as Griselle.
Founded in 1987, Kempinski Hotels is the oldest luxury hotel group in Europe. Today, the company operates a total of 79 five-star hotels in 34 countries, and is in the process of building new hotels in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Americas.
