National Media Discuss U.S.-Cuba Trade Developments with Pedro Freyre, Augusto Maxwell
February 13, 2015
As trade between the United States and Cuba opens, national media discussed the implications behind such policy changes with Akerman's International Practice Chair Pedro Freyre and Cuba Practice Chair Augusto Maxwell. Coverage appeared in The Associated Press, Miami Herald, Politico, Reuters, USA Today and WLRN, among others. Freyre and Maxwell told reporters that the new import rules allow independent Cuban entrepreneurs and cooperatives to export certain goods and services to the United States. They also noted the move would help private-sector growth across the island nation, especially since American companies may now buy services provided by Cuban entrepreneurs.

The Associated Press: "U.S. Allows Imports of Privately Produced Products from Cuba"
Miami Herald: "New Import Rules for Cuba Represent Historic Change"
Politico: "U.S. Cracks Open Door for Some Cuban Imports"
Reuters: "U.S. Eases Restrictions on Imports from Private Cubans"
USA Today: "New Rules Allow Cubans to Export their Goods to U.S."
WLRN: "New Cuban Import Rules Are Historic — but No Cigar"
