After decades of isolation, the U.S. is taking major steps to normalize relations with Cuba. Most Americans don’t know that before diplomatic relations were restored in July 2015, the U.S. had maintained a presence in Cuba.  Ambassador Shapiro served as a former Coordinator to Cuba. He still maintains a wide circle of high-level connections, giving him insight into the future of U.S.-Cuba relations.
