U.S. Rep. Castor visiting Cuba
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor is on a four-day visit to Cuba, a trip her office
billed as a fact-finding visit focused on opportunities to poise Tampa
as a gateway to Cuba and to create economic opportunities in this region.
She will meet with the Cuban Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of
Energy, the National Association of Cuban Economists, the Foreign
Ministry of Cuba and the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, according to
a written statement.
Castor also will visit farmers, small business owners and Finca Vigia,
Ernest Hemingway's house outside Havana.
The congresswoman recently announced that she supports lifting the
embargo, which restricts travel to and business with Cuba.
She is traveling with representatives of the Washington, D.C.-based
Center for Democracy in the Americas.
