Anyone who knows how Castro, Inc. operates will instantly know that Joe Garcia is lying when he says that doing business with “private” entities in Cuba doesn’t entail partnering up with Castro, Inc.
Unfortunately, many dupes will fall for his lies, and an even greater number of shameless opportunists who know he’s lying won’t care.
Truly disgusting behavior such as this can leave one speechless. One need not be surprised — given Joe Garcia’s undying love for Castro, Inc. — but it’s nonetheless difficult not to feel as if one’s head is about to explode.
Loosely translated from Diario de Cuba
Cuban-American Joe García, former federal representative for Florida in the House of Representatives between 2013 and 2015, assured various media outlets in the United States that small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) authorized by the Cuban government are “100% private” and have no requirement to have a partner in government.
In an interview with the Florida channel MegaTV, he assured that “a space has been opened in Cuba for these people, who are businesses that have private entities, who can open bank accounts, can do business outside of Cuba, can import and export, I think it’s an important novelty and it’s a space where those who live outside as well as those who live inside can create their own space”.
The lawyer and consultant, who was executive director of the Cuban American National Foundation (CANF) in the US, elaborated on the entities that the Government offers as an opening to its economy: “The owner has to be a Cuban born in Cuba, but you gives the right to do business, transactions, operations, enter and exit, even import to Cuba, and we have seen a huge increase in imports by private companies.”
García also offered an interview to CNN en Español where he mentioned the same issues again. In another intervention, on the YouTube channel of the Florida platform 23yFlagger, he affirmed that he had requested the release of the political prisoners during the meeting he had with Miguel Díaz-Canel, together with other US businessmen who visited Cuba a few days ago.
The businessman and politician was at the Palace of the Revolution at a reception offered by the island’s ruler at the end of October, after attending the first business forum between US businessmen and Cuban companies since 2016.
