Cuba: Looming Industries, Agents of Change
Professor of Logistics, Business and Public Policy
University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business
"[Beyond hospitality and tourism] the reality of Cuba is one of crumbling infrastructure, which could be an opportunity for many companies. Internet penetration is very low, and there will be investments in that area. The likes of farm machinery and automobiles could be next. The country also has a very educated workforce, and health care is relatively advanced. U.S. companies could locate there or through subsidiaries to take advantage of this talent -- but much farther down the road… [In a post-Castro Cuba] the Communist Party and its younger leadership will still be a significant force, but hope is that as free enterprise -- if not political openness -- takes root, and reforms deepen, we will be on an irreversible course. Change will occur relatively quickly for a number of reasons: The fall in oil prices has significantly weakened Venezuela, which has been one of the main financial supporters of the Cuban government. The leaders are faced with the stark reality of a failed economic system, and realization that market-based reforms are the only way out."
As director of UMD's Center for International Business Education and Research, Prasad recently visited Cuba to assess the business climate,in preparation to lead a group of U.S. scholars to Cuba in May 2016.
