Titled “Where is Cuba going?”, the 22nd annual event includes presentations by an unusual cross-section of academics and journalists from both sides of the Florida Straits.
“We are .. working towards bringing Cuba-based economists and scholars to the conference — as in prior years, funded by voluntary donations, not ASCE general member revenues,” the organization says on its Website.
The preliminary program includes presentations by Oscar Espinosa Chepe, a dissident economist from Cuba; Omar Everleny Pérez Villanueva, Armando Nova and Pavel Vidal, economists with the Centro de Estudios de la Economía Cubana (CEEC) at the University of Havana; Marc Frank, a Reuters and Financial Times contributor in Havana; Orlando Márquez, editor of Palabra Nueva, a Catholic Church magazine in Cuba; Jorge I. Domínguez (Harvard University); Julio Cerviño, with Universidad Carlos III in Madrid; Manuel Jorge Cutillas, a former CEO and chairman of Bacardi Co. Ltd.; and Carlos Saladrigas, founder and chairman of the Cuba Study Group.
ASCE pointed out that the lineup was preliminary and said it was still looking for panel leaders and discussants.
ASCE’s membership includes a cross section of diaspora academics, both pro- and anti-embargo. On its Website, the organization said it was “proud” that a former economy minister, José Luis Rodríguez, “respectfully” referred to ASCE analysts in Temas, an official forum for political discussion in Cuba.
