Invites you to a Forum to discuss:

THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF OPEN CUBA TRAVEL ON THE STATE OF FLORIDA

Date: Friday, May 21, 2010, 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Place: Hotel Sofitel, 5800 Blue Lagoon Drive, Miami, FL 33126

You are invited to a morning forum to discuss the economic impact on the state of Florida of opening Cuba travel to all Americans. This is an important issue for our state, especially in light of current economic conditions.

The forum will cover present law, and HR 4645, pending legislation which will authorize unrestricted travel to Cuba by all citizens and legal residents of the United States. It also will explore historical ties between Florida and Cuba and the impact of open travel on our aviation industry, agriculture and other aspects of Florida’s economy.

There will be speakers from the academic sector, representatives of several organizations which have worked on Cuba surveys and polls as well as representatives from the aviation and maritime industries. There will also be a telephone conference with members of Congress and the opportunity to ask questions after each panel as well as during the telephone conference.

To register, please contact Elena Freyre at 786-683-8241 or cubaid7@bellsouth.net or Tony Zamora at arzlaw@att.net.

The cost of registration is $25.00, which includes breakfast.

Please R.S.V.P. at your earliest convenience, as space is limited
