In an article published by Bloomberg BNA, I discussed the status of U.S. sanctions on Cuba in anticipation of the incoming change in administration. I believe Cuba may be a low priority for the Trump administration and that the president-elect will turn his attention to trade issues in other countries while the incoming Republican-controlled Congress won’t be particularly interested in lifting the trade embargo. “I certainly wouldn’t expect there to be a lot of movement on Cuba for the first year to year and a half of Trump’s administration,” I said in the article. “I just think he’ll have other higher priority items, especially in light of the fact that I don’t think he necessarily feels the need to open trade with Cuba and with most countries.”
The full article, “U.S.-Cuba Rail, Aviation, Port Deals in Jeopardy Under Trump,” was published by Bloomberg BNA’s Daily Report for Executives on December 14, 2016.
