Dr. Gomez: Preparing to do Business in a Future Cuba

PDF Print
Wednesday, 26 June 2013 12:01

Dr. Andy Gomez, Senior Policy Advisor

The government of Raul Castro continues to introduce what appear to be economic reforms in Cuba with the purpose of jump-starting a moribund economic system that for more than a decade has been controlled by the government and dependent on subsides by countries such as Russia and Venezuela. However, at the same time, the Cuban leadership has shown clear signs that they have no intention of relinquishing political control or honoring fundamental freedoms. 

This is a time of great economic and political uncertainty in Cuba. For the first time in decades there are clear factions starting to form within the Cuban government.  There are the hardliners, who would like to see no change at all. Then  there is a class of bureaucrats who do not agree with the pace of the current reforms. This group would like to see a great deal more economic liberalization. These individuals, some in very senior posts in the current government, propose reform within the existing government structure. It is difficult to tell at this point if this latter group is as ideologically committed to the Revolution as the others.
