HAVANA TIMES – A Texas business group traveled to Havana on Sunday, interested in exploring the Cuban market for their products, reported the Dallas Morning News.
Among the Texas industries represented are agricultural enterprises, airlines, oil, technology and tourism, said the delegation leader Cynthia Thomas, president of the consulting firm Tri Dimension Strategies, based in Dallas.
“We see the light at the end of the tunnel but do not know how long is the tunnel,” said Dwight Roberts, president and CEO of the US Rice Producers Association.
In 2008 a delegation led by the Texas state agriculture commissioner at that time made a similar 4-day agricultural trade mission to the island. At the time Texas businesses were selling about $ 25 million annually to Cuba in agricultural products.
