Financial Times Quotes Pedro Freyre on U.S.-Cuba Trade Outlook
June 16, 2015
International Practice Chair Pedro Freyre was quoted in a Financial Times special about Cuba titled, "Investing in Cuba," which analyzed the opening of bilateral relations between the United States and the island nation. Articles focused on the myriad facets that are leading the two countries to renew diplomatic and trade relations after more than half a century. Freyre discussed with the publication the state of the U.S. embargo on Cuba, following President Obama's historic announcement in December, restoring full diplomatic ties, as well as the country's removal from the U.S. terrorism list. Further, he indicated where opportunities lie both in the short and long term for American businesses, in particular financial services, telecommunications, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, construction and real estate, among several others. 

Freyre's comments are available in the following stories from "Investing in Cuba," a special report from The Financial Times:
"Thaw in U.S.-Cuba Relations Heightens Business Expectations"
"U.S. Companies still Face Investment Hurdles"
"Cuba: Showtime in Havana"
