Bringing Cuba Into the Digital Age

share this

In a post for DipNote, the State Department’s Official Blog, Ambassador Daniel Sepulveda outlined how the US plans to help Cuba usher in the Digital Age.

“Titled the “Cuba Digital and Telecommunications Advancement Act” (the “Cuba DATA Act”), the legislation would reaffirm the authority of the President to permit exports of telecommunications and technology services and infrastructure to Cuba.  The proposal sends a strong bipartisan signal to markets and the Cuban people that the United States is committed to helping bring the island’s digital isolation to an end, and is an important step towards facilitating expanded telecommunication services and relevant technology to the country. “

Ambassador Daniel Sepulveda serves as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State and U.S. Coordinator for International Communications and Information Policy in the State Department’s Bureau of Economic and Business Affairs.
