CEA Applauds Cuba Move
The Consumer Electronics Association on Wednesday praised the president's move to normalize relations with Cuba.
“We commend President Obama for taking steps designed to promote the emergence of a democratic, prosperous, and stable Cuba. Specifically, we welcome and are particularly excited about the new measures allowing the commercial export and sales of consumer communications devices, software, hardware and services. These efforts will provide exciting new market opportunities for our members and parallel our advocacy for expanded free trade globally," president and CEO Gary Shapiro said in a statement.
"More, these measures will increase Cubans’ access to the benefits consumer communications technology brings to the world - eliminating the borders of time and geographic location to bridge global communities, democratize access to information and entertainment content, and provide new hope for promoting democracy and human rights."
