The brief Conference Theme follows.

2017 ASCE Conference
July 27th – July 29th, 2017
The Hilton Miami Downtown Hotel
1601 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, Florida 33132

The three-day conference, around the theme “Cuba: Navigating a Turbulent World,” will focus on evaluating the state of the Cuban economy taking into consideration the impending changes in Cuba’s relations with the United States.

One key issue remains whether Cuba will implement the economic reforms needed to stimulate the private sector and attract foreign investment to spur economic growth. Another key issue is what will happen to Venezuela assistance to Cuba and to Cuba’ oil supplies if the economy of Venezuela keeps collapsing. Will Cuba seek to develop and modernize its primitive banking system? When will currency reform be implemented? When will the agricultural sector be restructured to increase productivity and output? Can we expect Cuba to develop its banking system and establish well-functioning capital markets?
