Cubans can buy US tech from tomorrow

Yes believe it or not the embargo placed on Cuba by the United States which means US companies are restricted from selling to Cuba is still in place today.

Recently however US president Barack Obama stated that he would be easing these restrictions to try and bring Cuba and the US closer. From tomorrow January 16th it will be finally legal for Cubans to purchase US technology such as smartphones and TV’s amongst other items.

It remains to be seen how many Cubans will actually be able to afford the technology due to low salaries but none the less this is great to see.


One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
