The United States hasn’t imported a thing from communist Cuba in 53 years. Today the Obama Administration set out the rules for changing that.
But you won’t see any of Cuba’s famous cigars arriving at PortMiami just yet.
The new trade regulations, announced by the State Department, are President Obama’s latest step toward normalizing relations with Cuba. They allow independent Cuban entrepreneurs to export goods and services to the U.S. – something that hasn’t happened since Washington established a trade embargo against Cuba in 1962.
