Pittsburgh Economy Could Gain From Easing of US-Cuba Relations

If the trend toward easing of relations between the United States and Cuba continues, as many think it will, that would mean a boost to the Pittsburgh economy.

Experts say that Cuba is in serious need of help in many fields that play to Pittsburgh's strengths, including energy & power generation, mass transit, health care, manufacturing equipment & technology, financial services, telecommunications, software engineering - the list goes on and on.

Area Cuban-Americans are already glad to see relaxed travel restrictions for individuals wishing to visit family members. (Read a related article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.)

We'll be hearing a lot more about Cuba in the months to come, and we can expect to see Pittsburgh business and economic development officials on the cutting edge. Watch this space for further updates.
