    An important part of the Cuban government’s response to the crisis of the 1990s focused on opening the country to foreign resources in order to capture foreign exchange, which had reached minimal levels, in the shortest time possible. This economic opening was critical for reactivating the economy and confronting the reality of the global economy and Cuba’s insertion in it. The most important aspects of the economic opening on the international plane were the promotion of and opening to investments of foreign capital, trade restructuring, and the accelerated development of international tourism.
