Washington, May 16 (RHC)--The U.S. State Department announced on Monday limited measures toward Cuba, reversing some of the more than 240 decisions taken by the Trump administration.

According to the statement, Joe Biden's administration will allow the re-establishment of commercial and charter flights to all Cuban provinces, which now only went to Havana, and will suspend the $1,000 per quarter limit on remittances.

Biden will also reinstate the Cuban Family Reunification Parole program that had been suspended for years.

According to the statement, consular services and visa processing will be increased, as well as facilities for families to visit relatives in Cuba and "for authorized U.S. travelers to interact with the Cuban people, attend meetings and conduct research".

It also states the purpose of encouraging "the growth of Cuba's private sector by supporting greater access to U.S. Internet services, applications and e-commerce platforms," opening "new avenues for electronic payments and U.S. business activities with independent Cuban entrepreneurs, including through increased access to microfinance and training."  It also states that it will authorize remittances of donations to Cuban entrepreneurs.
