The person most likely to become Cuba’s first Ambassador to the United States, Jose Ramon Cabanas, makes a stop on the suncoast. Yesterday Cabanas began the day touring the Port of Manatee a critical first stop because the U.S. Treasury last week issued licenses to at least six shipping lines to help spur ferry service between the two countries. Cabanas went on to speak at a Manatee Chamber of Commerce luncheon , visit Mote Marine Aquarium, and then finished the day at New College, speaking about on– going talks between the U.S. and Cuba and just what it will take to further their diplomatic relationship.
