7 February 2024, Erfurt, Free State of Thuringia, Germany: Thuringia’s Premier Bodo Ramelow received for bilateral conversation, the Cuban Ambassador in Germany, Juana Martínez González, in office since 7 April 2022. 

Ramelow belongs to the Left parliamentary group, which has spoken out in favor of more trade and scientific cooperation with Cuba. The export volume between the Free State and Cuba has fallen from around 5 million euros in 2012 to 586,000 euros in 2021. 

There are already initial collaborations in the field of medicine and biotechnology between the TU Ilmenau and the Friedrich Schiller University Jena with universities in Cuba. In the sports and tourism industry, however, there has so far been no exchange.

In the cultural sector, there have been repeated performances by Cuban musicians at the Rudolstadt Festival in the past. According to the data, Cuban students rarely go to Thuringia – only one to three were enrolled at a Thuringian university between the winter semester 2012/2013 and the winter semester 2021/2022.
