On-demand Webinar: Update on Doing Business in Cuba - The U.S. Embargo and Cuba’s Foreign Direct Investment Law

Do the recent changes to the United States’ embargo on Cuba, or its foreign investment laws, affect your business? As both countries work toward reestablishing embassies, and as you explore your business options, staying abreast of any changes to U.S. and Cuba business relations is essential. To learn more about the potential impact for your organization, watch the webinar video, offered by CT in partnership with Hunton & Williams LLP.

You will receive an update on the implementation of the U.S. embargo on Cuba in light of the White House’s announcement to restore full relations, an overview of Cuban legal reforms, direct investment laws, and some practical experiences with respect to Cuba.

Additional highlights include an overview of foreign investment framework, investment vehicles, and changes in U.S. regulations. You will also learn which industries are impacted by this change, as well as learn about some independent Cuban entrepreneurs.
