Obama Vows to Help Cuban Entrepreneurs and Improve Internet Access

HAVANA – U.S. president Barack Obama promises to help Cuban entrepreneurs prosper because he “believes in the Cuban people” and said that he will continue working to adopt changes that would improve and increase access to the internet on the island.

After his meeting with Cuban president Raul Castro at the Palace of the Revolution, Obama participated in a business forum with Cuban entrepreneurs, U.S. businessmen and representatives from Cuban state companies.

The Cuban economy “is beginning to change,” Obama said as he praised the spirit of the Cuban entrepreneurs and highlighted that the U.S. is ready to help them succeed.

“The bottom line is that we believe in the Cuban people,” he said.

According to the president, the future of the Cuban economy and its ability to meet the aspirations of its people depend on the growth of the private sector parallel to the actions of the government, a task that “is not easy,” he admitted.

On the other hand, Obama stressed that there are still “very few” Cubans with internet access and those who do usually have “expensive and slow” connections.

According to Obama, the United States wants to help Cuba and cited examples of measures that companies such as Verizon and Stripe are taking to facilitate communications with the island.
