HAVANA - Chinese President Xi Jinping is wrapping up his visit to Cuba after signing dozens of agreements for such things as investment by Chinese firms on the island.

The official newspaper Granma on Wednesday published a description of the agreements signed by the Chinese leader and Cuban President Raul Castro.

One calls for joint construction of a multipurpose port terminal in the eastern city of Santiago, while another would form a real estate firm associated with a golf course in Havana's Bellomonte section. Others deal with telecommunications, nickel extraction and other subjects.

China is Cuba's No. 2 international trade partner after Venezuela.

The Chinese president began his tour of Latin America last week in Brazil, and has also visited Argentina and Venezuela.
