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.
Preparing for Trade with Cuba will bring together top experts in law, trade regulation, market research, international business and logistics to discuss the opportunities restored US-Cuba relations create and how to leverage them.
