V. Manuel Rocha, senior advisor on international business at Foley, was quoted in an article titled “Jacksonville port would benefit from trade with Cuba” in the August 31, 2009 issue of the Jacksonville Business Journal. Rocha discusses predictions that the United States will drop its trade embargo with Cuba, noting that the relationship between the U.S. and Cuba has begun to thaw with the lifting of travel restrictions for Cuban-Americans and the resumption of immigration talks. He adds that agriculture lobbies and some health care officials have been pushing the Obama administration to take another look at its trade policy, remarking that it is not just Cuban-Americans who are changing their attitude on trade with Cuba.
