As the relationship between the United States and Cuba continues to unfold, the impact of U.S. policy on Cuba is more important than ever to explore. This delegation will explore the impact of the U.S. embargo on the island, and the impact of the recent “normalization” between the two countries, including trade relationships. Delegates will meet with Cubans from all sectors of society to learn about the history of the Cuban model, its achievements and struggles, the labor market on the island, and Cubans’ visions for the future. The economic models of Cuba and the United States will be explored, compared, and contrasted. Come learn about Cuba from Cubans themselves and understand what U.S. policy changes can be made to promote fair trade with the Cuban people.

Participants on this delegation will:

  • Hear first-hand about the effects of the U.S. embargo on the island
  • Explore Cuban national priorities, such as universal education and healthcare
  • Learn about the Cuban labor market and the economic model of Cuba
  • Discover how U.S. policies on trade affect the island and its people
