While the United States and Cuba currently have a tenuous relationship with much more work to be done, there are some exciting developments that could be huge for our company. In today’s post, we’ll provide you with a brief overview of why the thawing relationship between Cuba and the United States is an important development not only for GlobalSpeak Translations, but for the US economy as a whole.

Commissioner of the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, Mike Strain, recently led a 94-person delegation from the United States to Cuba. The delegation included members from various different agricultural industries, including soybean, rice, and sugarcane farmers. The delegation visited local markets, various farms, and the Port of Mariel.
Cuba imports approximately 80 percent of its produce, totaling almost $2 billion in agriculture spending annually. The delegation learned that the country needs even more agricultural commodities, including wheat, poultry, pork, soybeans, and other goods that Louisiana is in an excellent position to offer.
As we mentioned in a previous blog post, the Port of New Orleans set an all-time record in 2018, moving more shipping containers that year than it has in any previous year. This exciting development has led to investments and increased popularity, making it an ideal location for US-Cuba trading. The short distance between Louisiana and Cuba would allow domestic markets to compete with Cuba’s current trade partners, allowing both Cuban citizens and the US economy to benefit from future trade deals.
