cuba hoy conference
In anticipation of the U.S. moving towards a policy of engagement with
Cuba, as portended by the steady series of changes announced over the last
couple of years, the New Orleans-based International Cuba Society invited
the head of Cuba’s Interests Section (now embassy) in Washington to visit
the Crescent City. The visit in April, 2014 was a resounding success. The
Cuban delegation was warmly received and conducted meaningful engagements
with every group they had asked us to arrange meetings with. Historical
ties were explored and future cooperation was discussed. This act of
friendship placed New Orleans in the position of having offered a
conciliatory hand to Cuba, as a past and future friend and partner,
despite decades of hostilities. Plans were immediately put in place to
hold the Cuba Hoy
Conference in Havana to further position New Orleans and Louisiana for
future opportunities for trade and tourism.
