Alabama wondering what about Cuba trade in Trump era
June 25, 2017
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Agriculture officials and industry leaders in Alabama for years have lobbied for expanded exports to communist Cuba, a country they see as a promising market for this state's poultry products.
Now they're waiting to see what President Donald Trump's recent, more restrictive policy change with Cuba will mean for the millions of tons of poultry that leave Mobile for the island nation every month.
Alabama Agriculture Commissioner John McMillan last week said exports to Cuba could be impacted by that country's response to the president's directive.
