THE ECONOMIC, COMMERCIAL AND FINANCIAL BLOCKADE AGAINST CUBA REMAINS IN FULL FORCE
Monday, May 16, 2016

New York, 9 May 2016. The decision announced 17 December 2014 by President Raúl Castro and President Barack Obama on re-establishing diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba marked the beginning of an intense and complex process, showing unprecedented results in the history of bilateral relations such as the re-establishment of diplomatic relations and the re-opening of embassies in both capitals. The main obstacle in this process toward the improvement of relations is the permanence of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba, which influences all life spheres of the Cuban nation, affects the American people and other countries’ citizens, and remains in place despite the overwhelming rejection by the international community, which has called for ending the blockade in the United Nations for the last 24 successive years. The Barack Obama Administration has introduced changes to the implementation of the policy toward Cuba and has urged the Congress to lift the blockade. The changes to the blockade regulations issued during 2015 and 2016 are positive but limited since they do not modify fundamental aspects of such policy.

Significant restrictions that can be removed by the president’s executive action remain in place. These are inter alia:  The impossibility of establishing direct banking relations between financial institutions from Cuba and the United States, which hinders the transactions with the United States and increases their cost.  Restrictions to the importation of Cuban goods to the United States so that authorized trade remains basically unilateral.  Not extending measures like those endorsed for the telecommunications sector to other fields of economy, whic Read More...
