Case in point:
Cuban tourism workers told to keep their distance from foreign visitors
HAVANA (AP) – Cuba’s tourism ministry issued a resolution telling its workers to keep their mingling with foreigners to a minimum, prohibiting everything from accepting personal gifts to attending events in the homes or embassies of foreigners without written permission.
The resolution was signed by Tourism Minister Manuel Marrero in January and went into effect last week. It applies to Cubans working in tourism on the island, as well as overseas.
The action is the latest in a series of attempts by the government to further tighten state control on the island, which embraced tourism in the 1990s as a necessary evil after the fall of the Soviet Union thrust Cuba into an economic crisis.
Marrero took over as head of the tourism ministry last February after officials acknowledged serious problems in an agency that handles much of the business stemming from foreign visitors. (emph – Ed)
In case you havent heard, the “Tourism Ministry” in Cuba is run by the Ministry of Defense.
