Cuba signs deal with Sprint, says it is open for more business

HAVANA, Nov 2 (Reuters) - Cuba signed a roaming agreement with U.S. telecom Sprint Corp during its first annual trade fair since rapprochement with the United States and told 600 companies from 70 countries at that it was eager for more business.

The Havana International Fair (FIHAV) promotes Cuba's changing business climate and seeks badly needed foreign investment. Last year's event championed a new tax-cutting foreign investment law, while this year's boasted of improved ties with the United States.

In a historic breakthrough on Dec. 17, the former Cold War foes vowed to normalize relations, although the U.S. trade embargo on Cuba remains in place.

Cuba's critics denounce the fair as hype, noting that all business deals must go through the communist government or one of its tightly controlled state companies.
