In January 2015, as part of President Obama’s major shift in policy toward Cuba, the Administration took further action to ease restrictions on travel and remittances. The potential opening of relations with Cuba is offering hope that some of the current trade  restrictions may be lifted. Although the embargo remains in place, amendments have been made to Commerce’s EAR and Treasury’s CACR that provide additional authorizations consistent with the statutory framework of the embargo. These changes offer vast opportunities for U.S. businesses that are interested in the Cuban market.

NEXCO has developed a seminar to help international trade professionals learn more about doing business with Cuba. It will provide comprehensive information about tradig with Cuba including the process, realistic expectations, important contacts and the necessary licenses.

Join us for this seminar on “Preparing for Trade with Cuba”, on Friday, March 18, 2016. During this event, John Kavulich, President of the U.S.-Cuba Trade and Economic Council will discuss where we’ve been, where we are and where we think we want to be…and what is likely. Ted Henken will discuss his new book Entrepreneurial Cuba: The Changing Policy Landscape and a representative of the Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry & Security will explain how these changes can impact U.S. businesses. Additional speakers include Stephen Probst from Hogan Lovells and Robert Leo of Meeks, Sheppard, Leo & Pillsbury. You will gain valuable insight on preparing your company to begin trade with this island nation.
