For Cuba, 2016 has been an intense year. This year 2017, will be crucial for the future development of the country. The island will continue to play a leading role on the international scene. Cuba will continue its efforts to attract foreign investors driven by an almost virgin industrial and consumer market, an enviable geostrategic position and a highly qualified and educated population.
However, despite the fact that the Cuban market offers interesting medium and long-term business opportunities it is characterized by being highly complex in the political, governmental and operational areas.
