Workshop on exporting to Cuba scheduled April 21

Texas

A workshop on exporting food, forestry and agricultural products to Cuba is scheduled April 21 in Houston.

The workshop, which will be held at Brady's Landing at 8505 Cypress, is sponsored by the Texas-Cuba Trade Alliance , the Texas AgriLife Extension Service and the Greater Houston Partnership.

Jeff Moseley, president and chief executive officer of the Greater Houston Partnership, is the scheduled keynote luncheon speaker.

Workshop topics include Cuban market potential and an overview of the Texas trade mission to Cuba, provided by Ernest Bezdek, Port of Beaumont. Rosson will give a presentation on potential export opportunities with Cuba. Cynthia Thomas, president of the Texas-Cuba Trade Alliance, will discuss doing business in Cuba, and Jonathan Brown, a University of Texas professor with the Institute of Latin American Studies, will provide an overview on where Cuba may be headed politically. Tony Cristino, U.S. Department of Commerce, will give his insights on export licensing, a necessary requirement for exporting to Cuba.

"A panel discussion, led by Jon Jorgensen of Biehl and Company, will provide critical information about exporting," Rosson said. "The panel will feature Wayne Cleveland with the Texas Grain Sorghum Association, Pat Wallesen of WestStar Food Co., and Glen Jones, Texas Farm Bureau."

The registration fee, which includes lunch, is $65 before April 12 and $80 thereafter. To register, view the brochure at the Texas-Cuba Trade Alliance website at www.tcta.us. For more information on the event, contract Rosson at 979-845-3070 or prosson@tamu.edu.
