The Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce organized the trip to be a historical regional exploratory mission to lay the groundwork for future relationships, promote greater cultural ties and build potential economic and business interests in Cuba. The mission will also serve as a platform to share best practices and showcase the Washington metropolitan area’s strengths in transportation, tourism, health and education.
Members are meeting with Cuban government officials, including Havana Mayor Marta Hernández Romero, Cuba’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla and Minister of Foreign Trade and Investment Rodrigo Malmierca Díaz. They will also speak with U.S. Ambassador Jeffrey DeLaurentis about U.S. diplomacy in Cuba and economic opportunities for regional businesses in Havana.
