Historically, both countries were part of the Spanish Empire until the early 19th century (although Cuba kept its status as a Spanish colony for a longer time). Nowadays, both countries are full members of the Rio Group, of the Latin Union, of Latin American Integration Association, of the Association of Academies of the Spanish Language, of the Organization of Ibero-American States and of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States.
Cuba is becoming a significant trading partner of Uruguay.
