Foreign Investment in Cuba

The Minister of Foreign Trade and Investment Rodrigo Malmierca said that in 2018, 40 new businesses were authorized with a value of 1.5 billion dollars, and 35 of those projects are in the investment process.

Malmierca noted that in 2013, there was a new policy to foster foreign investment.  However, he mentioned some obstacles for the success of this endevour, and he mentioned among them Washington’s decades long restrictive measures against Havana in economic and financial matters.

He pointed out that the economic blockade affects not only American companies but of the entire world.  Malmierca also made reference to domestic hurdles like the existence of a double currency system, problems with financial liquidity, and other subjective factors such as delays in the process of business approval or lack of staff preparation.

The foreign trade and investment minister said that as an average, in order to prosper, Cuba needs two billion dollars of foreign investment annually, a figure the country has not yet reached.
