Florida Matters: Cuba Forum


In Florida and in Tampa Bay, ties to Cuba run very deep. In March, federal officials participated in a forum with community leaders in Tampa to discuss what may lie ahead, as some restrictions on travel and trade have been eased under changes announced earlier this year by the Obama administration.

Some Tampa Bay area business leaders have wanted better relations with Cuba for years. What lies ahead as relations between Cuba and the United States are changing? 

This week on Florida Matters, we are bringing you highlights of those discussions on Cuba that were hosted by the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce and Tampa International Airport on March 30.

Guests include U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor; DavinBlackborow, Assistant Director for Licensing, Office of Foreign Assets Control, U.S. Department of Treasury; and Matthew Borman, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Industry and Security, U.S. Department of Commerce.
