NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro will be talking to state business leaders about travel and business regulations with Cuba.
DeLauro, a Democrat representing New Haven and its suburbs, will discuss regulatory changes since President Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro’s government announced in December that the two countries would begin to repair ties after a half-century of enmity.
The Obama administration significantly eased the 54-year economic embargo of Cuba, allowing U.S. telecommunications exports for the first time and ending a restriction on American credit and debit card transactions on the island.
The officials from the U.S Commerce and Treasury departments will be participating by video conference in Monday morning’s event at Middlesex Community College in Middletown.
