U.S.-Cuba Commercial Relations and Business Development
The U.S. and Cuban governments are at the initial stages of considering how American firms in the information and communications technology and other sectors will be able to enter the Cuban market. The U.S. government is encouraging efforts to increase the ability of the Cuban people to communicate with the U.S. and globally and has allowed American firms to undertake business in this area.
