Original Letter: USACC

United States Agriculture Coalition for Cuba Encourages Biden Administration to Improve U.S. / Cuba Agriculture Relations

The United States Agriculture Coalition for Cuba (USACC) today wrote to President-Elect Biden to urge a return to policies of engagement toward Cuba, for the sake of the U.S. national interest, to boost U.S. food exports to Cuba, and to support the development of beneficial relations between our countries’ agricultural sectors.

The text of the letter follows:

Dear Mr. President-Elect: The undersigned members of the U.S. Agriculture Coalition for Cuba congratulate you on your election victory and wish you every success in office.

We would like to offer our views on U.S. relations with our neighbors in Cuba.

We share your view that six decades of economic sanctions against Cuba have been ineffectual. Our sanctions hurt the Cuban people, limit American influence in Cuba, and antagonize friends and allies, while doing nothing to advance any U.S. interest.

A turn to policies of engagement will serve our national interest and benefit U.S. agriculture, which has long practiced many forms of engagement on a global scale. Freed of restrictions, we expect that ties between our agricultural sectors will produce important economic and humanitarian benefits and contribute to better relations between our peoples and governments. American strength in agricultural exports has been built over the years on the principle that all markets matter.

Cuba is an opportunity for U.S. farmers and ranchers: it imports $2 billion in food each year, less than ten percent from the United States. U.S. exports of potatoes, wheat, animal feed, dairy, poultry, rice, and other products stand to grow significantly.

U.S. farmers, businesses, private organizations, NGOs, and universities can work with Cuban counterparts on the challenges of increasing productivity, adapting to climate change, and building sound commercial strategies.

With Cuba now allowing its private sector to import and export, and also inviting foreign investment in private farm cooperatives, the opportunities for Americans to assist in the growth of that private sector have expanded

We offer these recommendations.

First, we urge you to resume efforts to normalize relations. We hope you make clear that neither our principles nor our interests are served by harming the Cuban economy and increasing hardship for the eleven million neighbors who live in it. We urge you to inform Congress that your Administration would welcome legislation to end the embargo entirely, should Congress choose to act.

Second, we urge early action to restore the Cuban Asset Control Regulations to those in place January 20, 2017 and to suspend Title III of the Helms-Burton Act of 1996. These regulatory steps are important to U.S. agriculture, to business generally, and to any Americans seeking to make a positive difference. Recent experience shows that U.S. travelers propel growth across Cuba’s private sector, benefiting many thousands of Cuban families.

Third, we urge you to support legislation to put U.S. exporters on an equal footing with our competitors by allowing us to negotiate trade terms including private financial credit.

Fourth, we urge resuming full operation of our Embassy in Havana as health considerations permit. The lack of consular and other operations impedes travel, business, and effective diplomacy. A full Embassy staff, which we hope will include U.S. Department of Agriculture personnel, can support continued work on the 2016 agriculture memoranda of understanding, especially in plant and animal health, and to create conditions for two-way trade, including Cuban exports. American agriculture supports a Cuba policy based on our broad national interests, enabling citizens and business across our country to engage freely.

We are confident that such a course will have strong bipartisan support, and we urge you to take it.

We appreciate your consideration of our views.

International Tourism Fair, Varadero May 3 - 8, 2020

 Havana, 19 Dec.- The Ministry of Tourism of Cuba (Mintur) works intensively in the preparation of the XL edition of the International Tourism Fair, FITCuba 2021, planned from 3 to 8 May in Varadero, in a context of new normality marked by the Covid-19.

In the framework of the event will be the FITCuba MICE, a space dedicated exclusively to the tourism of events and incentives, a further example of the importance that the country and the Mintur attaches to the development of this modality, explained Dalila Alba González García, deputy director general of Marketing of the organization.

We hope to converge in this space actors of the event industry in Cuba and other nations, in an exchange as a workshop and business meetings, commented the specialist during the official launch of the Calendar Events Cuba 2021 and 2022.

In addition, he added, the catalogue will be presented with all the facilities of the destination for the realization of events.

Edition 40 of the event, as has already been reported, will have Russia as a guest country of honor, a market that has had significant growth in Cuba, even in these times marked by the pandemic, González García told the press.

It recalled that this year it was not possible to hold the meeting because of the epidemiological situation imposed by the CORONAvirus SARS-CoV-2, which caused the Covid-19, and noted that all necessary measures had been taken to organize the next one, which was part of the 17 tourist events to be held in The Greatest of the Antilles in 2021.

FITCuba 2021 will focus on the sun and beach product, and is part of the uptick in this sector, which will also have as projections for next year the continuity of the vitality of this activity and the increase of the arrival of visitors to the country, he noted.

With dozens of hotels certified with the status Most Hygienic and Safe Tourism, The Mintur, in conjunction with the Ministry of Health and international organizations, has provided for safety protocols to preserve the health of both customers and their workers.

The XXXIX International Tourism Fair, FITCuba 2019, had the record participation of more than seven thousand 500 professionals from the tourism industry, from 53 countries.

Petition to Biden-Harris on Restoring Cuba Policies with Signers

 On line list currently at 1,885.  Names below will be updated when reaches 2,000  

1/21 1:42 P.M.

TO: President Joseph Biden, Vice-President  Kamala Harris, Secretary of State Nominee Antony Blinken


Restoration of Obama's Cuba Policy by the Biden-Harris Administration

Restoration of Obama's Cuba Policy by the Biden-Harris Administration


We ask you to confirm during the first days of the Biden-Harris Administration your plan to restore President Obama's opening with Cuba including general licenses for all travel; cultural, sports and educational exchanges; flights to regions and cruises; unrestricted remittances and personal transfers; agricultural sales; business agreements; and renewal of full embassy and consular services.

Sign by clicking here


Why is this important?

During their campaign, President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris pledged to "promptly reverse the failed Trump policies that have inflicted harm on the Cuban people".

We agree with Robert Malley, the President of the International Crisis Group, writing in the New York Times, that to "restore President Barack Obama’s Cuba policy" is beneficial "low hanging fruit", appropriate for the beginning of the Biden-Harris Administration.

Substantial majorities of Americans support repairing the Trump Administration's symbolic and substantive damage to our freedom as well as to our national political and economic interest .

Prompt action is essential so independent visitors and specialized travel agencies can create trips that renew support for Cuba's private sector by the spring and summer of 2021.

Cruise lines, tour operators, airlines, universities, cultural exchanges, agricultural producers and businesses require early policy change in order to resume jobs generating engagement in the 2021-2022 season.

Organizer: Fund for Reconciliation and Development, US/Cuba People to People Partnership
Cosponsors: Center for Cuban Culture + Economy; Gallatin Valley Friends of Cuba, Montana; US Women and Cuba Collaboration
