U.S.-Cuba Business Council
The U.S.-Cuba Business Council is the premier business advocacy organization dedicated to strengthening the economic and commercial relationship between the United States and Cuba.
On September 25, 2015, with support from senior U.S. and Cuban government officials, and in alignment with the demands of the Chamber’s member companies, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce launched the U.S.-Cuba Business Council in Washington, D.C. The long-term objective of the Council is to create a barrier-free economic and commercial partnership between the United States and Cuba. The Council continues to advocate for engagement that will both enhance commercial and investment opportunities for U.S. companies in Cuba, while also affording economic benefits directly to the Cuban people, including:
- reconnection of families through facilitation of remittances and travel;
- support of businesses through remittances and travel;
- diplomatic engagement;
- promotion of a more open Internet in Cuba;
- support of agricultural trade with Cuba;
- suspension of Title III of the Cuban and Democratic Solidarity Act of 1996; and
- reassessment of Cuba designations under U.S. laws.
The U.S.-Cuba Business Council reacts to the statement on U.S.-Cuba relations released by the White House.
