Embassies are open and U.S. tourism to Cuba is on the rise, but travelers still need one of 12 licenses to justify trips. AS/COA's Policy Director Alana Tummino talked to NPR's All Things Considered about remaining travel hurdles, as well as U.S. businesses paying visits. "A lot of companies are taking trips trying to figure out where there might be an opportunity to help build out the telecommunications infrastructure, or to help build out the infrastructure to use American debit and credit cards on the island," said Tummino.
