Barack Obama to Meet Raul Castro and Cuban Entrepreneurs on Monday

HAVANA – On the second day of his trip to Cuba, United States President Barack Obama will meet on Monday Cuban President Raul Castro and participate in a business forum attended by U.S. business leaders and Cuban entrepreneurs on the island’s emerging private sector.

Obama and Castro will hold official talks at the Palace of the Revolution, the third meeting between the two presidents since announcing the reestablishment of diplomatic relations, and the first official visit by a U.S. president to Cuba since 1959.

They will hold a bilateral meeting for around one hour which afterwards will include official delegations from the Cuban and U.S. governments; and the two presidents will issue a press statement after the meeting.

As is common in high-level visits, before official talks, President Obama will pay tribute by laying a wreath by the statue of national hero Jose Marti at the Plaza of the Revolution where there is also a portrait of Che Guevara.

In the afternoon, the president will attend a business forum between the U.S. business leaders, with representatives of Cuban state-owned enterprises, the emerging private sector of the island, cooperatives and the so-called “self-employed” or entrepreneurs.

Obama has repeatedly expressed his intention to help the development of this emerging sector that is considered a stepping stone and is helping to modernize Cuba’s economy.

Later in the evening, Obama will attend a state dinner, hosted by President Raul Castro at the Palace of the Revolution.
