National and international media outlets highlighted the Cuba Study Group‘s April 7 release of a white paper in collaboration with Americas Society/Council of the Americas and the Center for Financial Inclusion at ACCION International.
The white paper, “Supporting Small Business in Cuba: Recommendations for Private and Public Sector Leaders,” was released just before the Communist Party of Cuba’s sixth congress.
The paper outlines specific steps the Cuban government, the US government and private sector, NGO and foundation leaders can take to support micro and small businesses in Cuba.
