ABSTRACT

Momentum for progress in repealing the blockade — ‘ still a formidable barrier’ — continues to build, with Latin American and Caribbean nations again deploring its effect, now joined by former US secretary of state Hilary Clinton. The US has removed Cuba from its human trafficking list, Spain and China seek ways to strengthen relations, Cuba is to showcase advances in dealing with dengue fever, commercialisation with overseas partners of a vaccine for cancer is under way, as well as a new method of identifying pregnancy from as soon as 72 hours into the cycle, and Panama says ‘thank-you Cuba’ for the success there of the ‘Yo sí puedo’ literacy programme.
In our Travel & tourism section, Nature tourism and the environment is the focus of September’s Turnat 2015 international event, new excursions to Pico Turquino have been set up, health tourism gets a boost from Panamanian agency Belraysa, tourism figures for the first half of the year are just under 2million, 15 percent up year on year, influential Dutch magazine Travelution has published a special issue on Cuba and giant US hotel chain Marriott is shaping up to do business on the island acknowledging it is in a race with companies from many other nations.
Inside Cuba picks up news of a new documentary on Fidel — ‘the world’s most-watched man’ — we cover the death of the much-loved actor Alina Rodriguez, and disclose that temperatures in Cuba were sky-high last month with 39.3degsC measured in Bayamo, in the east.
