The US organization Engage Cuba launched a State Council created in Georgia, which will direct their actions to end the economic, commercial and financial blockade that the US imposes against the Caribbean island.
The council is made up of prominent businessmen and community leaders, who seek to expand trade with Cuba and provide opportunities for companies of this southern state.
‘Georgia businesses are stuck and our foreign competitors continue to take advantage of Cuba’s growing markets. Opening up trade with Cuba would provide enormous opportunities for agriculture, tourism and industry,” said James Williams, president of Engage Cuba.
‘It’s time to end 50 years of failed, isolationist policies toward Cuba’, he added.
