Cuba: President Trump Partially Rolls Back Obama Engagement Policy [June 21, 2017]   [open pdf - 129KB]

"The most significant policy changes include [1] restrictions on financial transactions with companies controlled by the Cuban military, intelligence, or security services or personnel and [2] the elimination of individual people-to-people travel. President Trump's memorandum directed the heads of departments (Treasury and Commerce, in coordination with the State Department) to initiate a process within 30 days to adjust current regulations. The policy changes will not take place until the amended regulations are issued; the Treasury Department, for example, indicated that it expects to issue its regulatory amendments in the coming months."
