Texas trade group heads to Cuba

Source: Yahoo! News / AP

DALLAS (AP) A Texas delegation is arriving in Cuba with hopes of building a front-of-the-line position for renewed trade with the Caribbean nation long isolated by a U.S. embargo.

The Dallas Morning News (http://bit.ly/1IX4MDi ) reports the delegation landing in Havana on Sunday is the first Texas has sent to Cuba since the U.S. and the communist island nation agreed to restore diplomatic relations.

Texas industries with potential to expand trade with Cuba include agriculture, airlines, oil, technology and tourism, said Cynthia Thomas, president of the Dallas-based consulting firm Tri Dimension Strategies and leader of the delegation.

"The last visits were about making introductions, getting to know one another, finding the right comfort zone," she said. "This time, there's a different environment all around. We understand the Cubans are more excited about doing business. We are, too."

1. Finally, Texas will get some decent, affordable health care

 

Which Cuba is known for. All Texas has to offer is a lot of hot air, which Cuba has plenty of.

6. There are enough doctors in Cuba to take care of the US doctor shortage for the next decade.

And they are all bilingual! I predict that Cuba's number one export to the US will be physicians and that the Cuban standard of living will rise through the roof as the doctors employed in the US start making some real money to send back home.

7. Two questions

 

Did Ted Cruz go along?
If so any chance Cuba would keep him?
