GIC’s Delegation to Cuba 2024
We invite GIC Members to join us on our return visit to Cuba! We are delighted to be working with Cuba Educational Travel (CET), a leader in business and policy travel to Cuba, to assist in facilitating our return to Havana! Join us January 14-18/20, 2024 to experience Cuba’s rapidly changing society and gain a deeper understanding of the island, while ensuring full compliance with all U.S. regulations.
CET has prepared a customized itinerary enabling GIC’s Members to experience Cuba’s rapidly changing society and gain a deeper understanding of the island, while ensuring full compliance with all U.S. regulations. In Havana, our Delegation will meet with senior representatives from the Central Bank of Cuba, Cuba’s Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the U.S. Embassy in Cuba, select European Diplomats, as well members of the Entrepreneurial community.
After visiting Havana, our Delegation will depart for Trinidad, Cuba, with a stop at the Bay of Pigs, the site of the U.S.-coordinated invasion in 1961 and meet with survivors of the invasion. Our program will conclude with a tour of Trinidad, Cuba, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and guests will return to the U.S. from Santa Clara International Airport (SNU).
