The Ambassador in Cuba ( Norweb ) to the Secretary of State
[Received October 29.]
Sir: I have the honor to forward herewith copy of a memorandum prepared by Commercial Attaché Howard, in which is outlined the present policy and attitude of the Cuban Government authorities concerned [Page 750] with civil aviation matters. The development of this policy has almost in its entirety taken place over the past year and a half and is motivated primarily by a desire to secure to Cuban companies reciprocal privileges from the countries of which foreign airlines operating into Cuba are nationals.
The data in the enclosed memorandum should be very useful to the Department in the event of bilateral aviation discussions with Cuba. Moreover, I believe that this resume will be of great value to American companies who are considering operations to Cuba, but owing to its nature should be made available with discretion.
