Cuba empowers postal system to receive international payments

CUBA STANDARD — The Central Bank empowered Cuba’s postal system to provide international financial services.

With Resolution 208, published Aug. 26 in the Gaceta Oficial, the central bank authorizes Grupo Empresarial Correos de Cuba to “act as a non-financial support entity for financial institutions on national territory”.
