The Cuban Economy in the Context of COVID-19
This is a past event.
Friday, May 1 at 12:00pm to 1:00pmVirtual Event
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Cuba was already suffering the worst economic crisis since the 1990s. In addition to basically maintaining the central planning model (with some modest reforms) that's been unable to increase GDP growth and production, Cuba has also suffered cuts in its economic relationship with Venezuela and Trumps’ aggressive policies on the U.S. embargo. In this presentation, Dr. Carmelo Mesa-Lago will discuss the domestic macroeconomic indicators and the impact of the two external variables.
