12 de junio de 2017, 14:47Washington, Jun 12 (Prensa Latina) About 65 percent of the U.S. voters, among them more than 6 of 10 Republicans, reportedly support the relations with Cuba, re-established by the administration of former U.S. President Barack Obama (2009-2017).

Trump is scheduled to travel to South Florida this week, where he is expected to announce his new Cuba policy. The decision would pinch off a boom in American tourism that has centered on Havana and other Cuban cities, although Trump is expected to leave open the USA embassy, allow Cuban-Americans to send remittances to their families, and continue to allow special immigration status for Cubans.

In 2014, Obama renewed diplomatic ties with Cuba after more than 50 years of hostility following Fidel Castro's revolution and embrace of Communism.

Dr Guillen also remarked that as the US Congress did not yet lift "any parts of the embargo" imposed against Cuba, it would be relatively easy for the White House to reverse "some of the executive orders by the Obama administration".

Leisure travelling to Cuba is still illegal under US legislation, but has become quit common under certain conditions.

In an interview Monday, John Kavulich, president of the U.S. -Cuba Trade and Economic Council, said that his government contacts say no policy decision is final yet.

But Obama eliminated restrictions on "people to people" travel, opening the door for tens of thousands of travelers to book their own independent trips to Cuba. One advocate of Obama's policies said a change would have less impact on a vacationer than on people seeking to do business or on Cuban-Americans who want to visit family on the island on a regular basis.

He also said he does not want to see curbs on Cuban entrepreneurship or the US more focused on Cuba sanctions than on sanctions against North Korea or Iran.

Obama's policy changes have resulted to a massive corporate investment in Cuba, involving recent, daily commercial flights, licenses for US hotel workers and also agricultural investments by USA companies.

The island has not been as promising a business opportunity as USA airlines once expected, however.
