  • Ambassador Shapiro, World Affairs Council President & former Director of the Cuba Affairs Bureau at the U.S. State Department

On Friday, June 16, President Trump announced the results of his administration’s review of Cuba policy. In general terms he reversed some but not all of the opening to Cuba which President Obama initiated in December 2014. Come to this flash briefing to find out what these changes will mean for travel to Cuba and what the impact will be for doing business in Cuba. Ambassador Charles Shapiro will discuss what we know, what will be revealed when the regulations are written at Treasury and Commerce and what you need to know about travel to Cuba.
