Over the last decade, Cuba has diversified its economic relations, building trade and investment ties with China, Brazil, Russia and Venezuela while also maintaining relations with Canada, Mexico and Europe.

On August 4, the Latin America Initiative at Brookings joined the Latin America Program at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars for a discussion with Richard Feinberg on the diversification of Cuba’s international economic relations over the last decade.

The discussion focused on several key components of Cuba’s international economic relations, including diplomatic and economic motivations behind each new economic partnerships. Feinberg also spoke on Cuba’s south-south strategy and what it means for U.S. policies toward Cuba today and in the future.
