Congressman Leonard Boswell’s going to Cuba. Boswell will accompany folks from the Iowa Corn Promotion Board and Des Moines on a trip that’s planned for May 14th through the 20th. Boswell says he’s excited about having an opportunity to expand trade between Iowa and Cuba. Critics say it’s wrong for the U-S to do anything to support the regime of Fidel Castro, and that includes selling food and agricultural goods to Cubans. Boswell says those critics have been around for some time, and meanwhile Cuba’s still there and presents a ready market that should be explored. Boswell is a member of the House Ag Committee and will meet with the leader of the Cuban government’s food and ag products import organization. Boswell and the rest of the Iowa delegation also will meet with offcials from Cuban food companies, restaurants and hotels.
