United States Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker arrived in Cuba on Monday for a high-level visit.
Pritzker is just the second US Cabinet official to visit Cuba in more than a half century, following US Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent visit.
On Tuesday, Pritzker was set to co-chair a regulatory dialogue with Cuban officials.
Her trip to the island includes meetings with Cuban Minister of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment Rodrigo Malmierca, Cuban Minister of Foreign Affairs Bruno Rodriguez, and the Vice-President of the Council of Ministers Ricardo Cabrisas.
On Monday, she visited Cuba’s Mariel Special Development Zone, where she visited the container terminal and warehouse and was briefed on plans for the zone.
