BBC: AS/COA’s Eric Farnsworth on Cuban Leader Raúl Castro

Thursday, February 28, 2013

President Raúl Castro’s announcement of his last 5-year term ending on 2018 has raised hopes of a post-Castro era and of a succeeding younger Cuban leadership. AS/COA’s Eric Farnsworth speaks to BBC World News about Castro’s statement as the island undergoes significant political and economic changes. “They’re signaling that there does need to be a transition at some point in the future and I think he’s laying the groundwork for that,” Farnsworth said.
