Resumé

Most Cubans are optimistic by the thawing in diplomatic relations between their country and the United States. Despite the restrictions that the United States government has placed on interactions between the two countries, Cubans have long had intimate contact with United States culture and welcome the opening. However, economic reforms, too, have had less of an impact than it might seem. Under a new strategy unveiled in 2011, the government improved the environment in which the small-scale entrepreneurs known as “cuentapropistas” operate e.g. making it easier to obtain licenses. However this also exposed them to bureaucracy, complicated tax system and excessive bank charges. This seminar will with point of departure in different perspectives seek to create a platform for discussions about future challenges in Cuba.
