Eduardo R. Guzmán, a partner in the Washington D.C. office of Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP specializing in telecommunications and dispute resolution in the United States and Latin America, recently authored an article titled, “Telecommunications in Cuba and the Embargo: History, Opportunities, and Challenges,” which was re-published in Bloomberg BNA's Telecommunications Law Resource Center.

The article uses President Obama’s recent announcement of a new policy towards Cuba and the new regulations authorizing telecommunications transactions in Cuba as a starting point for a discussion of the opportunities and challenges ahead for potential U.S. investors looking at the Cuban telecommunications sector.

While the article recognizes the interest in Cuba from the telecommunications perspective, it counsels for a realistic look at the challenges and opportunities ahead from the optics of the history of U.S.-Cuba telecommunications, the state of the telecommunications industry in Cuba today, the potential limitations that come from the statutory framework that continues in effect despite the relaxation of sanctions, and Cuba’s telecommunications policy.
