Doing Business in Cuba

Doing Business in Cuba
Thursday, January 26, 2017 :


1:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern US Time

On December 17, 2014, President Obama announced the United States will restore full diplomatic relations with Cuba for the first time in more than half a century.

Months after the announcement, the United States removed Cuba from its list of state sponsors of terrorism, which led the two countries to reopen their embassies in Havana and Washington in July.  President Obama has recently called on Congress to begin work on ending the five-decade- long Cuban embargo this year.

The Economist Intelligence Unit expects a lifting of all US sanctions in 2018. The question would be: what can you do to ensure you capitalize on opportunities for expanding your business into Cuba?
During this webinar, we will provide a practical overview on how to conduct business in Cuba, covering the following topics:
  • US Sanctions
  • Changes to US government regulations
  • A look at Cuba's political and business environment
  • Cuban new foreign investment law, structures allowed, warranties for the investors, taxation, dispute resolution mechanism available, relevant labor laws, etc.
  • Foreign direct investment
  • The New Free Zone of Mariel
  • Import- export regulations
  • Intellectual property protection
  • Immigration and customs regime
  • Trade usages and local business practices
Please join us for this discussion on doing business in Cuba to gain insight on how to capitalize on opportunities for expanding your business into Cuba.
