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. 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. Click here for the conference schedule.
