Wayne County, in Michigan, passed a resolution calling for the reestablishment of relations between Cuba and the US.
The letter, sent to the Biden administration, also calls for the lifting of the Blockade (embargo) and the economic, commercial, and financial sanctions that weigh on the island. It also asks the new government to establish a cooperative relationship and the restitution of diplomatic personnel in the Caribbean nation.
The letter is based on the benefits they would bring to both nations in such important sectors as food production, education, health, tourism, the arts, and biotechnology, and medical research.
Similarly, it argues that for the automobile capital, as Michigan is known worldwide, business opportunities would benefit the automobile and agricultural industries, as well as imports and exports. In terms of improved travel, cultural opportunities and greater social collaboration would facilitate goodwill and help re-establish diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba.
The letter also includes progress made during the Obama administration, actions that were held back for the last four years by former President Donald Trump. It also reflects the development achieved by Cuba for its socio-political improvements, such as the entry into force of a new Constitution and the monetary ordering process.
The request is also based on the request made by several congressmen for the elimination of the sanctions that weigh on the island and the re-establishment of diplomatic relations.
To date, a score of American cities, non-state entities, personalities from different latitudes, organizations from different parts of the world, and millions of people around the world have joined this claim.
