As originally reported on January 14, 2015 by Knowledge@Wharton, for some five decades, economic relations between the U.S. and Cuba were ossified in policies born during the Cold War. On December 17 last year, President Barack Obama took a major step towards thawing this freeze when he announced that the U.S. and Cuba would work towards re-establishing diplomatic relations and potentially lift the economic embargo between the two countries.


What will this historic change mean for economic relations between the U.S. and Cuba? What opportunities — and risks — should American companies consider as they explore the business potential of one of the largest markets in the Caribbean?


In order to answer these questions, Knowledge@Wharton in partnership with The Lauder Institute and Momentum will bring together the leading business, political, policy and legal experts who have real-world experience with the Cuban economy and government with renown thought leaders from the world’s leading business school, Wharton at the Cuba Opportunity Summit on April 1.
