As Cuba lifts investment and trade barriers to boost economic growth, the U.S. embargo on the island remains in place. "[Cuba is] trying to raise $8 billion in investments related to energy and mining and oil and agriculture," AS/COA Policy Director Alana Tummino told CNN International’s World Business Today. "So they are really looking to different countries and different ways to attract that growth." Tummino, who leads the AS/COA Cuba Working Group, notes that many countries are already investing, including Brazil, Canada, China, and Spain.
