Cuba law conference in Orlando.

A conference scheduled for Feb. 20 and 21 in Orlando will focus on Cuba's economic reforms and the changing legal environment.

The keynote speech will be by Rep. Kathy Castor, a Tampa Democrat who is advocating closer relations with Cuba.

"Cuba 2014: What the U.S. Legal and Business Communities Need to Know" includes a dozen discussion panels, covering specific industries such as energy, mining and the environment, pharmaceutical and healthcare, small business in Cuba, as well as telecommunications and IT, and topics ranging from the Mariel Special Development Zone and intellectual property, to recent changes in U.S. policy, Cuba's new economic policy and the impact of the Cuban diaspora. Panelists include lobbyist and former Rep. Bill Delahunt, Brookings Institution analyst Richard Feinberg, consultant Phil Peters, Andres Fanjul, co-owner of sugar giant Fanjul Corp., publisher and music entrepreneur Hugo Cancio, travel company owner Tessie Aral, and energy analyst Jorge Pinon.

The event, at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, is organized by Miami attorney Tony Zamora and sponsored by the Florida Bar International Section, as well as Cuba Media LLC (the owners of this newsletter and Cuba Standard).
