Trade Mission to Cuba

The Trade Alliance to Promote Prosperity (TAPP) is leading a trade mission to Cuba with a select group of people including Members of Congress, stakeholders, industry leaders and members of the media. We will promote visibility and participate in enhanced discussions on trade, intellectual property, energy, tourism, manufacturing and other fundamental issues with government officials and key industry leaders in Cuba.

The trade mission will depart Washington, D.C. on September 18, 2017, and return on September 21, 2017.

Our Mission

This operation will encourage the efforts of these representatives to advance such issues with key industries across Cuba and the United States.
