    Five rising democracies

    The United States wants to move beyond a Cold War-era approach to one of constructive engagement as a way to support and empower the Cuban people. Cuba needs the United States as an economic engine for its troubled economy and hopes to attract new foreign investment and human capital to update its socialist model, but without undergoing political reform. Building confidence and trust will be critical to the ability to move forward.

    There's huge red tape. This is an economy that is state-controlled, and Cubans complain about how hard it is to do business or even get services. [But] you're seeing a lot of [American] companies wanting to figure out how to position themselves for the day when the embargo is gone.

    Cuba rests in a very different part of the world than China or Vietnam. We’re in a democratic hemisphere, and Cuba is next door to one of the largest, most successful, powerful democracies in the world – the United States. This policy change will allow other regional neighbors to join us in supporting democratic change in Cuba. That’s the hemispheric standard.
