New Survey Shows U.S.Travelers Support Cuba's Private Sector

A new survey which highlights how American travelers visiting Cuba overwhelmingly support Cuba's growing private sector and empower the Cuban people. 

"This survey proves that American travel to Cuba is empowering the Cuban people by supporting the Island's growing private sector, which is fueled by foreign travelers," said President of Engage Cuba, James Williams. "Not only are Americans monetarily supporting Cuban entrepreneurs, but they're engaging in conversations about U.S. culture and values, internet and technology, and religious freedom. While American travel to Cuba is booming, it's still illegal to visit our island neighbor as a tourist. It's time Congress removes this arbitrary restriction to further support Cuban entrepreneurs and the American people." 

The survey of recent American travelers to Cuba was conducted in March 2017 by Public Opinion Strategies in conjunction with Cuba Educational Travel. A summary of the survey is available here
