Cuba Today: 2014 Global Opportunities Conference
Over fifty years after the revolution, Cuba's command economy is in the midst of change, with increased room for self-employment and cooperatively-owned business becoming a part of its structure. Meanwhile, the US embargo of Cuba is still in full effect, limiting US-Cuba travel and trade in ways that impact both economies and the relationship between these countries. What has brought Cuba to this moment in history? What are the effects of today's changing policies? What does the future hold? The 2014 Global Opportunities Conference will provide a forum for discussing “Cuba Today," and its implications on the future of the Cuban people.
Invited speakers from the University of Havana:
- Dr. Alejandro Arturo Gumá Ruiz, Researcher, Juan Marinello Cuban Institute for Cultural Research
- Dr. Humberto Blanco Rosales, Director, Center for the Study of the Cuban Economy
- Dr. Jose Manuel Febles Gonzales, Director, Office of International Relations, Universidad de la Habana
- Dr. Juana Tania García Lorenzo, Researcher, Juan Marinello Cuban Institute for Cultural Research
The Sixth Annual Global Opportunities Conference is scheduled for Friday, April 11th, 2014.
The annual Global Opportunities Conference highlights innovative and entrepreneurial ways of addressing global challenges. Our goal is to inspire students, faculty and the local community to use their knowledge and skills in the business of building a better world.
