The blockade against Cuba is considered a trap for the United States

The blockade against Cuba is considered a trap for the United States

Havana, Oct 19 (Prensa Latina) The vice president of ASC International USA Co., Vicente Amor, pointed out on Wednesday that the economic, commercial, and financial obstacles (blockade) imposed by the United States against Cuba also represent a trap for his country.

In an interview published on Wednesday by Granma newspaper, the executive added that this 60-year-old barrier is a serious obstacle to business between the two nations.

ASC International USA, a travel agency based in Tampa, suffers from the intensification during the Donald Trump administration (2017-2022) of such measures, mostly maintained by US President Joe Biden.

Of Cuban roots, this businessman has had commercial relations with Cuba for more than 20 years and his firm moves groups of people interested in getting to know the Caribbean island and relating, in some way, with the Government and the people.

He said that his company has brought mayors, congresspeople, senators, government officials, city councilors, businesspeople, lawyers, and university students to Cuba.

Amor described the US blockade policy as very negative, because these measures nearly paralyzed all commercial activities of his company, as there was no possibility for air connections with the provinces and many other prohibitions.

He explained that sometimes they concentrate on the economic damage, which is devastating, but the inclusion of Cuba in the list of countries that presumably sponsor terrorism, a totally absurd and senseless measure, also has terrible consequences.

The businessman participated recently in the 1st International Fair of Transportation and Logistics in Havana.

He noted that including Cuba in this spurious list led to restrictions on banking operations for his company.

He commented that now they want to prohibit the business group from doing business with Cuba under principles outside the foundations of the US Constitution.

Amor said that Cuban laws stimulate commercial exchange between national private entrepreneurs with the rest of the world, and stated that his company, for more than 20 years, has been successful in Cuba, for being a supporter of a respectful relationship, and recognized the new scenario as an opportunity to expand business.
