An embargoed island
Well, whether you are a supporter or not of the embargo here is some interesting news, courtesy of our friends over at the Associated Press.
Despite the supposed restrictions on trade, Cuban officials have confirmed to the foreign media that the US continued to be the island’s main supplier of food and farm products last year.
American farmers and primary producers sold Cuba more than USD600 million in 2007 – about the same amount as in the previous 12 months. For cash, of course.
