The Chinese embassy is particularly important because China has been greatly increasing its investment in Cuba, which is directly leading to an improvement in the economy. China seems to recognize the significance and potential of the highly skilled and educated Cuban workforce, and want to make certain that they are clearly seen as an ally, ready to help in whatever way necessary.
