The links between Spain and its former colonies in Central and South America remain very strong, and they embrace communist Cuba as much as capitalist Argentina. Four Spanish computer companies, Dimoni, Edicino, Tesi and Red Com, have announced contracts totalling $9m with the Cuban government. The deals were negotiated during an international fair held in Havana and are mainly in the software field. The biggest contract is for a network system and software applications generator to be supplied by Red Com. The company is also to supply computer stationery, and is preparing to invest between $2.0m and $2.5m in a paper factory in Spain. Dimoni Software will send 10,000 units of its Ditext Usage program, worth $3.6m. Tesi is to sell licences for its Barbro Statistics program, while Edicinco has signed a pact to sell 2,000 Spectravideo computers for use in Cuban schools.
