The Miami Herald features the Atlantic Council report, Cuba’s Economic Reintegration, in a discussion of the steps necessary to achieve Cuba’s potential reintegration with the world economy:
“To jumpstart Cuba’s economy, he [Cuban leader Raúl Castro] will need to accelerate the fiscal and monetary reforms started in 2008,” said the Atlantic Council report authored by Pavel Vidal, a Cuban economist, and Scott Brown, the International Monetary Fund (IMF)’s former mission chief for Albania. “International financial institutions…. hold the key to easing Cuba through a tough transition to a more stable economic model that will better the lives of its people.”
Vidal addressed the session via video from the University of Cali, where he is teaching. He said there is now a “unique opportunity” for international financial institutions to support and stimulate Cuba’s economic reforms.
