The Cuban government-Party-State has acknowledged the poor performance of the country’s economy during the first half of the year. Criticisms among Cuban economists are more frequent. There is a consensus about the need to free Cuba’s productive forces.

The United States has had to yield to pressures from Latin America and accept Cuba’s participation at the next Summit of the Americas, to be held on April 10, 2015. President Barack Obama had no choice: had he maintained the veto, it would have meant the end of these presidential gatherings.
My mother and I went to get a Self-Employment License. We’re going to bring together investment and talent, quitting our professions, to make a little money and contribute to the country’s GDP. There are plenty of forms, seals & stuffy offices ahead of us.
