Why Should You Attend:
On September 18, 2015, the US Department of Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and the US Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) respectively amended the Cuban Assets Control Regulations (CACR) and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to further ease the US embargo against Cuba and authorize certain business activities with Cuba in targeted sectors.
This is the second major round of amendments in the past year to the CACR and Cuba-specific provisions of the EAR with the first OFAC and BIS action taking place in January 2015,. According to a Treasury Department fact sheet, the Obama Administration is “further delivering on the new direction toward US relations with Cuba that President Obama laid out last December.”
This session will focus on the amendments and the intentional reduction for the need for specific licensing for activities in certain sectors that the administration has targeted for sanctions relief, such as telecommunications, internet-based services, transportation/travel and tourism, export-import, legal services, educational activities, commercial and financial services, to name a few.
