Readying for Post Cuba Travel Ban

By Circles Robinson

HAVANA TIMES, Jan 21 — Travel related businesses from the US will meet March 24-26 in Cancun, Mexico with Cuban tourism ministry officials to plot a hypothetical situation where the US government rescinds its travel ban to the Caribbean nation.

The travel ban has been in place for most of the last 50 years and legislation, including HR 874, is in Congress to rescind it.

Nonetheless, with no support from the Obama administration, and other more pressing issues on the congressional agenda, there is little assurance that any change is in the works.

The same goes for the US economic blockade on Cuba which has helped cripple the island’s economy over five decades but has not brought the desired political changes sought by 11 US administrations.
