Cuba moves toward wholesale for small businesses

The Associated Press

HAVANA — Cuba is reorganizing a state-run wholesale supplier and

directing it to also work with private entrepreneurs and independent

cooperatives.

The recent government resolution is a step toward providing better

access to wholesale supplies, one of the biggest needs expressed by

Cuba's more than 400,000 private-sector workers.

Analysts have called the lack of access a major impediment to the

island's budding entrepreneurial class.

Small businesses have had to purchase supplies at retail or rely on

"mules," who fly goods in from other countries in overstuffed suitcases.

The resolution says the wholesale entity will offer everything from

foodstuffs to computers. It apparently will begin operating sometime in

the second quarter of this year.

Cuba is in the process of remaking its socialist economic model with a

dollop of private-sector activity.
