With the news that the Obama administration will be easing the sanctions on Cuba, our clients are exploring opportunities closed to them for 53 years. Join us for an interactive program exploring this historic shift in government policy and its impact on your business.

We’ll discuss:

  • By teleconference: A representative of the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, offers an overview of the new policy and fields your questions
  • New business opportunities
  • Doing business in Cuba—the legal and business reality on the ground
  • Politics and policy

We want to hear from you! Please submit a question to be read by the moderator and discussed at the table during the interactive event.
