Days before the opening of the US Embassy in Havana, the Atlantic Council’s Latin America Center launched a new report
today that provides a ten point roadmap for Cuba’s reintegration into the global economy. Key to the success of this effort will be to push for a reengagement between Cuba and the international financial institutions (IFIs) including the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). Cuba’s Economic Reintegration: Begin with the International Financial Institutions
is the first major policy publication on Cuba’s role in the global economic community since the December announcement of new policies toward Cuba. The team of authors include Cuban economist Pavel Vidal and former Senior IMF Economist Scott Brown, a former mission chief for Albania.
