It was history in the making for Cuban nationals everywhere and those living here in Cayman, are no strangers to this change. The visit of the US President, Barrack Obama into the country of Cuba, is a visit perceived by some, as a sign that times are changing. For the first time in almost 90 years, the President of the United States visited the Caribbean neighbors, accompanied by his wife and two daughters.
The visit was seen as a historic moment in the relations of the two countries.
Michel Reynolds-Smeith believes that this is the first step in building a brighter future with the United States and says that the new found relationship is something that most Cubans should embrace.
“Open our relationships and I also believe this would be a big opportunity for Cuban investors and whoever else wants to receive help from the US government. Also this will bring with it new opportunities,” said Reynolds Smeith, local Cuban on island.
President Obama departed Cuba earlier today. The last President to visit Cuba was Calvin Coolidge in 1928.
