On May 29, 2016, Thorstein Holt traveled to Cuba on a trade mission with Governor Nixon and the Missouri Department of Economic Development. The main purpose was to “pave the road” for future business when the trade embargo is lifted. A meeting was set up with key Cuban officials and the trip was so successful that Thorstein will soon be returning to Cuba for further meetings. Thorstein found the island very charming and the Cubans very warm and welcoming. He looks forward to when the relations are normalized between the two countries.
