Open for Business: Building the New Cuban Economy

Americas Society / Council of the Americas

December 1, 2016


Since 2011, the Cuban government has made significant economic reforms, and since December 17, 2014, has taken steps to normalize relations with the United States. Most recently, the U.S. election and the passing of Fidel Castro introduce new cross-currents into the changing U.S.-Cuban relationship. Join Richard Feinberg as he presents his book Open for Business: Building the New Cuban Economy, which analyzes the evolution of Cuba’s economic model. The book highlights the emerging opportunities for business and investment in Cuba, the economic development challenges faced by the island, as well as the path to developing an innovative entrepreneurial class in Cuba. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
