Dear Mr. President:
Re: Your October 14, 2016 Presidential Policy Directive – United States-Cuba Normalization
First of all I would like to acknowledge the decisive change in your Cuba policy by re-establishing a diplomatic relationship with the Island that was broken for way too long. I would also like to recognize the positive developments in areas such as telecommunication, transportation and travel, and some aspects of trade and commerce since December 17, 2014.
