Doing Business in Cuba

The recent diplomatic and regulatory changes concerning Cuba have opened a host of new possibilities for US businesses to enter a frontier market 90 miles away from US shores.

Please join Mayer Brown associate Gretel Echarte, who was born, raised and educated in Havana, Cuba, as she discusses a number of important topics related to the potential for doing business in Cuba today and the challenges US businesses are likely to encounter in the short and mid term as US-Cuba relations progress towards normalization and Cuba transitions to a more open market. Some of the topics that will be discussed include:

  • The Cuban government’s perspective on the potential for doing business with US companies.
  • Sectors in which foreign investment, in general, and US investment, in particular, are more likely to be welcomed by the Cuban government.
  • Challenges US businesses are likely to face during the early stages of their business efforts in Cuba.
  • Challenges US businesses are likely to face during the operational stages of their business ventures in Cuba.
