ECLAC says US blockade hinders Cuban development. Paramaribo, July, 30, 2015.
Thursday, July 30, 2015

 HAVANA, Cuba, Jul 30 (acn) The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, ECLAC, regretted that the US blockade on Cuba hinders the development of that island nation, though it stressed some advancements taking place in the Caribbean country.

ECLAC’s executive secretary Alicia Barcena said in Santiago de Chile that although some opening has taken place in sectors like tourism and trade, the truth is that the US blockade continues to increase financial costs for Cuba.

“We submitted a report to the UN General Assembly, and we did some calculations that revealed that the blockade inflicted Cuba damages estimated at about 117 million dollars in 2014,” said Barcena.

As to Cuba’s economic prospects she said that there is significant progress, but there is still the barrier of the blockade, and she added that some travel restrictions have been lifted, but we are talking about a very difficult issue, the blockade. (EmbaCuba Suriname).

Compared with data from a similar Pew survey held in January, there was a considerable increase in support for the change of policy towards Cuba, when 63 percent of those surveyed by Pew said it supports the announcements made on December 17 and 66 percent was in favor of lifting the blockade.
After 54 years, six months and 17 days, the governments of Havana and Washington reestablished diplomatic relations on July 20, and the Cuban embassy was reopened in the U.S. capital.
Meanwhile, in Havana, the ceremony to hoist the U.S. flag on its legation will take place on August 14, as confirmed U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in a press conference this week.
The public support of U.S. citizens to resume relations with Cuba was majority, regardless of political affiliation.
The Pew survey shows an increase in support from U.S. political parties to the process of rapprochement between the two nations: 56 percent of Republicans approve the reestablishment of relations, a 16 percent increase since January.
Also, eight out of every 10 Democrats support the new policy of President Barack Obama, as does 75 percent of independents, an increase from nine and eight percent, respectively.
