Exports and Imports

In case you needed further proof that Cuban agriculture is in seriously big trouble, it’s been confirmed that the Castro regime is about to start importing red beans ... from Malawi.

Nothing wrong with Malawi, of course, except for the fact that this landlocked country in south-east Africa has one of the least advanced economies in the world, with a majority of its 13 million inhabitants living well below the poverty line.

And yet, Malawi is able to export 15,000 metric tons of red beans to Cuba, in a deal reportedly worth some USD12 million.
