 “It’s important to remember that Cuba remains a communist country, and that there will be significant legal entanglements before CEOs can start signing deals with the Cuban government. But, (there are) industries that stand to be big winners in a U.S.-Cuba thaw.”

– “Five Industries Set To Benefit From The U.S.-Cuba Thaw”, Forbes.com



Tourism. Aviation. Infrastructure. Hospitality. Agriculture. Food. Retail – Every industry will have its own set of Cuban regulatory hurdles that will need to be overcome in order for U.S. businesses to successfully stake a claim.

“First movers” will have a major advantage which means that having the right regulatory and compliance strategy in place – as well as a deep understanding of “how things are done” in Cuba – will be the keys to success.

With support from the U.S. Cuba Trade Alliance, Momentum’s U.S. –  Cuba Corporate Counsel Summit will bring together GC’s from major US corporations charged with the task of navigating through the regulatory landscape. They will be joined by outside counsel from the US and Cuba who have the expertise they need. Drawing lessons from European and Asian companies already operating in Cuba, attendees will receive a detailed strategic roadmap and essential network which will enable their organizations to chart a path to success.
