The Lifting of the Cuban Embargo: New Opportunities for Florida Businesses

On January 26th, 2015, Doreen Edelman and Klint Alexander, from Baker Donelson, gave a briefing on change in U.S.-Cuba policy. The recent announcement by the Obama Administration to lift the U.S. embargo against Cuba will dramatically expand the regional marketplace for Florida business and organizations. Changes in law will open the door to increased trade, investment, and business opportunities for manufacturers, service providers, and agribusiness, and will reduce travel restrictions for American citizens. Attendees were able to learn about current opportunities for Florida companies from experienced trade professionals.
