From the Document: "On May 16, 2022, the Biden Administration announced several forthcoming changes to U.S. policy [hyperlink] toward Cuba, with the overarching goal of increasing support for the Cuban people. The changes, which emanate from a policy review begun by the Administration in 2021, fall into four broad areas-- facilitating family reunification, expanding authorized travel, supporting Cuba's private sector, and easing some restrictions on remittances. According to the State Department spokesperson, the changes will provide Cubans with 'additional tools to pursue life free from Cuban government oppression and to seek greater economic opportunities [hyperlink].' The Administration stated that it plans to implement the policy changes in the coming weeks through various steps and regulatory changes undertaken by relevant U.S. departments and agencies."
