Former energy minister urges Scots firms to take up opportunities in Cuba


A new era for US-Cuba relations creates opportunities for Scottish businesses in the Caribbean, former energy minister Brian Wilson says. After half a century of Cold War acrimony, the US and Cuba are trying to restore diplomatic links in a historic shift that could revitalise the flow of money and people across the narrow waters that separate the two nations. It could mean an end to the US trade embargo which has stifled investment and hampered business in Cuba for more than 50 years.
