The article focuses on the farm trade issues between the U.S. and Cuba. It reveals that trade and travel embargo placed by the U.S. on Cuba after Fidel Castro assumed leadership eliminated all U.S. trade with the nation. It highlights the Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Act of 2000, opening the door to U.S. farm, forestry and medicinal trade with Cuba which is linked to the Swiss Embassy that allows the U.S. to have an interest section office in Havana.
