Late last year, the Trump administration issued long-awaited regulations that impact U.S. companies seeking to do business in Cuba. Among other things, the new regulations block business with certain Cuban entities owned or controlled by Cuban military, intelligence or security services that are specifically included on a new Cuba Restricted List published by the U.S. State Department, and restrict individual people to people travel to the island.

The impact of the new rules is expected to be mostly on the tourism sector in Cuba, and on projects contemplated for Cuba’s new Special Economic Development Zone at the port of Mariel, two areas in which the Cuban Armed Forces’ holding company, GAESA, has significant investments.
