Cuba’s Minister of Foreign Trade Rodrigo Malmierca will meet with American officials at the US Chamber of Commerce on February 16, Cuban Ambassador to the United States Jose Ramon Cabanas said in a Twitter message.

In December 2014, US President Barack Obama announced the United States would normalize relations with Cuba. The two countries reopened embassies in their respective capitals last July after more than 50 years of non-engagement and hostilities.

Despite the rapprochement between the two countries, Washington continues to maintain a trade embargo on Havana that is mandated by the US Congress.
