We have now confirmed a bipartisan congressional panel for the February 22 “Cuba and the Caribbean: What Now?” event. Florida Congressman Carlos Curbelo, whose district includes the Keys, which bore the direct hurricane hit, is joined by Virgin Islands Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett. The moderator of this session is Ben White, journalist from Politico and CNBC political correspondent.
The full program and registration information can be obtained with this link: https://www.wusf.usf.edu/cuba_and_the_caribbean_what_now.
This full day is designed to inform a broad range of people — tourists, travel agents, investors, policy wonks, and weather-forecasting folks. And those who wish to think about the government’s responsibility and actions in the hurricane-damaged parts of Florida or Texas or Virgin Islands or Puerto Rico or Cuba or elsewhere in the Caribbean, this program is for you.
The event costs only 50 bucks, and that covers lunch. This open forum is made possible by USF Sarasota-Manatee, the Atlanta Fed Americas Center, and the Global Interdependence Center. All media are welcome to cover the panel, and the entire community is invited.
