As bilateral integration continues apace, Dr. Carlos Alzugaray will provide a snapshot of U.S.-Cuban relations during a moment of remarkable change and uncertainty. In this roundtable discussion, he will assess the state of Cuba’s economic reforms amid growing U.S. investment, and discuss what President Obama’s visit means for the future of Cuban governance.

About the Sponsors

World Policy Institute’s Cuban Reset program connects diverse perspectives from the U.S., Cuba, and beyond to build partnerships and consensus around the challenges of reconciliation. The program will serve as a conduit between North American and Cuban leaders, facilitate relationship building between political and economic actors, and devise strategies to shape business and financial policies in line with the normalization timetable. It will bring potential Cuban and U.S. partners to the table as equals and provide an environment to problem solve on shared interests as influential forces in Western Hemispheric affairs.

This event is held in association with the World Economic Roundtable, a joint venture of New America's Economic Growth Program and the Walter Eberstadt World Economic Policy Program at the World Policy Institute. It seeks to help the business, investment, and policy communities understand ongoing changes in the world economy and to promote a discussion of ideas that can advance the goal of a widely shared global prosperity.
