Dr. Gomez: Is Cuba Really Changing?

PDF Print
Monday, 11 March 2013 18:48

Dr. Andy Gomez, a Senior Advisor with our Coral Gables, Florida office, published an op-ed today in Carbbean Journal: Is Cuba Really Changing? A few weeks ago, the Cuban Communist Party named what may be a successor to Fidel Castro and Raul Castro. Dr. Gomez talks about this most recent development and what it could mean for changes in Cuba: 

Since taking over power, Raúl Castro has named a number of party faithful to key government positions. Most of them were born after the start of the Cuban revolution. Many Cuba analysts, I included, would agree that we underestimated Raúl Castro's management skills.

We all knew he did not have the charisma and leadership style needed to succeed his brother Fidel. Yet he has proven to be a good strategist by planning and selecting a new breed of Cuban leaders to follow him and Fidel.

In the months to come, we will continue to see more changes and more youthful people continue to be appointed to key positions in Cuba's government. One big challenge this new cadre of leadership faces is how to revive a moribund economy.

You can read Dr. Gomez's entire op-ed at the Caribbean Journal website

PT Law Senior Policy Advisor Pens Cuba Op-Ed in The Miami Herald

PDF Print
Saturday, 23 February 2013 13:09

PT Law's Senior Public Policy Advisor based Coral Gables, Florida, Dr. Andy Gomez, published an op-ed in The Miami Herald earlier this week about one of Cuba's leading dissident blogger, Ms. Yoani Sanchez.

"For years I have followed Yoani Sánchez's blog and comments on Twitter. Her writings portray a very accurate picture of the daily life of Cubans on the island. Her stance for freedom of expression has caused her many problems with Cuba's totalitarian government. Yet she has continued to express her views, openly defying the Castro brothers' regime," Dr. Gomez said.

"For a political town, inagurations are one of a few exceptions to political banter, a time of renewal and reflection. Even when your from the other political party, you celebrate our country and its institutions. A few days from now, the political discourse will commence anew and both parties will need to deal with many important issues. We hope, in a bipartisan and focused manner," added Poblete.

PT Law Cuba Expert Interviewed by Voice of Russia on new travel rules in Cuba

PDF Print
Tuesday, 15 January 2013 15:15

Last year, the Cuban government announced a series of legal changes allowing Cubans to travel outside of Cuba without government permission. The new travel regulations went into effect yesterday.

A U.S. Department of State spokesman said yesterday the "United States welcomes any reforms that allow Cubans to depart from and return to their country freely, which is obviously a right that's provided to everyone under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to be able to come and go from your own country or any other country." However, the spokesman added that Cuba "i[s] still one of the most repressive places in terms of its human rights record, in terms of its restrictions on its citizens, in terms of speech, assembly, political rights, et cetera. But we welcome any liberalization and we hope that this will turn out to be one such."
