Working Documents on the Cuban Economy

Below is a collection of working documents resulting from the international conference, El Caribe en Su Inerción Internacional (Cuba Today and the Road Ahead) held in San José, Costa Rica on February 2009, organized by the Center for Inter-American Policy and Research and the Centro de Investigación y Adiestramiento Político Administrativo (CIAPA).

The conference examined the then current situation of the Cuban economy and its future challenges, Raúl Castro’s reforms and other domestic dynamics, integration issues, and U.S.-Cuba relations, primarily focusing on economic themes because Cuban reforms had been limited to the economic realm (political reforms at this time were not on the agenda).

Cuba’s foreign policy and its close ties to Venezuela and China were also explored, with a strong emphasis on U.S. policy towards Cuba as the new Obama administration, with larger Democratic majorities in both the House of Representatives and Senate, gave light to fostering important changes.

Below is a list of working documents resulting from this two-day conference available for viewing.

Please note several are in Spanish.
