Cuba and the U.S.: The Emerging Regulatory Framework

Thursday, February 11, 2016 - 3:00pm

A roundtable discussion featuring
Pedro A. Freyre, Chair of Akerman's International Practice

This meeting inaugurates the World Policy Institute’s Cuban Reset Dialogues, a yearlong series that will host leading figures in law, finance, and governance to assess the state of play in U.S.-Cuban reconciliation and trade. Pedro Freyre launches the series by addressing the evolving regulatory space and offering ground-level insight on the prospects for restored bilateral trade and investment.

Pedro Freyre advises U.S.-based companies on the types of business transactions that are legal in Cuba under the U.S. embargo, helps U.S. entities that are engaged in authorized activities in connection with entering the Cuban market, and advises foreign entities that are involved in Cuba business on implications with U.S. law. He is a Lecturer of Law at Columbia University School of Law, where he co-teaches a seminar titled “Cuba: Law Policy and Transition.”

We hope you will join us for an informative discussion on the evolving legal and regulatory constraints on bilateral relations, and the obstacles and opportunities facing U.S. investors in Cuba. An off-the-record Q & A will follow Mr. Freyre’s presentation.

This event is by invitation only.


About World Policy Institute

A center for global thought leadership, the World Policy Institute is uniquely focused on the crucial but neglected challenges and opportunities of an increasingly interconnected world. We stress innovative, transformative thinking; diversity of ideas; and a global perspective. World Policy Journal, fellows, events, and policy projects provide channels for supporters, thought leaders, decision makers, experts, and citizens to identify, debate, and develop constructive solutions.


About the Sponsors

The 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.
