Global Trade Alert: New Cuba Restricted Party List Released

Posted by Mandy Hyde

In June 2017, President Trump announced forthcoming changes to the Cuba sanctions program in his "National Security Presidential Memorandum Strengthening the Policy of the United States Toward Cuba" ("Cuba NSPM"). These changes reflected modifications to be made to the broader Cuba reform initiated by former President Obama in January 2015 - much of which is still in effect today.
