Cuba also has significant deposits of cobalt, iron, copper, chromite, manganese, zinc, and tungsten. Cuba's oil deposits are still being explored and represent a large opportunity for some oil companies.


In addition to its exports, Cuba is a large importer

of both manufactured goods and commodities.
