New York Gov. Cuomo Plans Trip to Cuba to Promote the State

Saturday, 17 Jan 2015 06:32 PM

Just a month after the U.S. government eased travel restrictions on Cuba, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is planning a trip to the island nation.

Cuomo spokeswoman Melissa DeRosa said in an email Saturday that Cuomo plans to lead a trade mission to Cuba to promote New York. She did not say when the Democratic governor would travel, adding that details would be announced later.

On Dec. 17, Cuba and the United States announced that the U.S. embargo on Cuba would be eased and diplomatic relations would be normalized.

DeRosa says the trip to Cuba would be part of a "Global NY" initiative. Cuomo has previously announced that he plans trips to Israel, China, Mexico and elsewhere during his new second term as governor.
