Winner of a 2016 Independent Publisher Book Award and the most updated ebook available on the opportunities the Cuban market holds for US business

After President Barack Obama’s announcement in December 2014, investors, business leaders, and entrepreneurs asked, What will this historic change mean for economic relations between the United States and Cuba? What opportunities—and risks—should US companies consider as they explore the business potential of one of the largest markets in the Caribbean? Now, 15 months later, the answers are becoming more clear.

In The Road to Cuba: The Opportunities and Risks for US Business, Revised and Updated Edition, Knowledge@Wharton, The Wharton School’s online journal of business analysis, answers these questions and addresses:

  • Quick-win opportunities: travel and tourism, telecoms, financial services, and food industries
  • Longer-term prospects: construction and real estate, energy production and mining, manufacturing and retail, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, and agriculture
  • The political and economic  risks and hurdles: An analysis of what could speed up—or derail—progress in relations

The Road to Cuba is the most up-to-date guide for business leaders in the United States who want to understand the opportunities the Cuban market holds. It is also a must-read for business leaders in Cuba and around the world who want to understand the investment and competition that is on its way.
