Fla. business owners attend business expo in Cuba
9:48 PM, Oct 31, 2015
A small group of Florida business owners boarded a plane for Cuba on
Saturday afternoon. They are headed to an international business expo
in Havana. The event gives American entrepreneurs a chance to network
and connect with Cuban business people.
“Primarily my interest is education I understand it’s very important to
the Cuban people so I’m just curious how they have managed without the
technology we have to educate their people,” said Dana Moxley.
There is still an American embargo with Cuba, but Americans are allowed
to travel to Cuba with certain restrictions. Ivar Fiskaa owns
“tampa2cuba.com.” He believes it won’t be long before the embargo is
lifted, which means business owners are researching the country now.
“They are very interested in the future doing business with Cuba because
there are more and more American entrepreneurs in different fields that
want to go down now and see what they can do when probably they will
lift the embargo soon,” said Fiskaa.
Fiskaa estimates about 2,000 people travel to Cuba each month from the
Tampa Bay area. He said this is a huge increase from just a few years ago.
” You have to go see cuba now while it’s still not totally changed,”
Reports show Americans visiting Cuba is up more than 35-percent.
