ABSTRACT

Uncontrolled migration to the US under its 1960s ‘wet foot/dry foot’ legislation has prompted Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa to declare Ecuador would not be a ‘coyote country’ and facilitate human trafficking, as a Cuban delegation puts its case against the US position in the current round of migration talks in Havana. In other news we learn of new measures to optimise use of Cuba’s resources, especially energy, and improve self-sufficiency, while Mexican airline Interjet joins the set ready to expand Cuba’s international air links.

ABSTRACT

What should have been a significant step in opening up trade for Cuba cannot overcome the fear of retribution and Cuba’s Central Bank vice-president tells in our lead story how the US in March authorised Cuba’s use of the dollar in international transactions ‘the measure has had little impact.’

We follow with news of progress at the first conference on money transferrals and a further bilateral debt restructure deal, this time with Sweden. At the UN, Cuba has joined the voices calling for an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestine and return to its pre-1967 borders; also in Diplomacy we cover talks with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and then move to Environment, for news of US/Cuban cooperation on the care and sustainable management of marine biodiversity.

ABSTRACT

Mitigation of the blockade may be glacial: but at least dialogue is developing in the US Congress and a majority of US-based Cubans are in favour. We mark progress on travel restrictions and credit arrangements, while under Diplomacy Raul talks to the Colombian peace-talk participants applauded by the UN secretary-general for Cuba’s participation in this long-awaited Colombia/FARC-EP accord. Relations with China are consolidated by sharing results of the Cuban 7th PCC Congress, and Denmark, another Paris Club member, has signed a debt restructuring agreement. We also cover the opening of an enlarged Panama Canal.
