ABSTRACT

The world is watching as Cubans and North Americans get together for the second discussion on the re-establishment of diplomatic relations. A number of US senators have been in Cuba to gauge the mood of the people as the rest of Latin America and the Caribbean urge the US to accelerate the process of ‘normalisation,’ cheered on, in a sense, by both New York Times and Los Angeles Times daily newspapers in our Media section. Meanwhile tourism is booming, driven by Canadian interests, many more aircraft arrivals are scheduled, and copies of new books are flying off the shelves at the Book Fair. New Zealand will be supporting Cuba’s medical assistance initiative in the Pacific Islands, facilitating English language training for the doctors and providing logistical support. We cover the successful and longstanding collaboration of the US and Cuba in the field of meteorology, and the success of Cuban anti-drug smuggling methods. The Friends of Cuba in Angola remember the success of the Cuban brigade helping liberate their country from oppression by apartheid South Africa in the 1970s, and Costa Rica’s National Assembly president Henry Mora on a diplomatic visit has highlighted the importance of relations between parliaments: “Assemblymen are the representatives of the people and a good relationship between these bodies ensures good exchanges at governmental level.”
