Bloomberg reported on the 15th that according to people familiar with the matter, the team of President-elect Biden of the United States plans to gradually return to normal relations with Cuba and lift many sanctions and regulations imposed by the Trump administration.
The Biden team’s strategy includes relaxing restrictions on travel, investment and remittances that it believes have disproportionately harmed the American people and the ordinary Cuban people, according to people familiar with the matter.
As the new government is still being formed, people familiar with the matter demanded anonymity. In addition, other measures against Cuba’s “human rights violations” will continue to be implemented.
Biden said in October that the United States needed a new Cuban policy, although his team had firmly condemned Cuba’s suppression of dissidents. In September, he said he would work to “reverse Trump’s failed policy of harming the Cuban people and their families”.
