Dilma's visit

  • The Wall Street Journal on the visit of the Brazilian President to Cuba, and Brazil’s stronger role in regional affairs.

  • Bloomberg: Yoani Sanchez saw herself in Dilma, and was disappointed in Dilma.

  • AFP: Brazil’s Odebrecht announced a 10-year agreement to work on sugar production and milling in Camaguey.

  • At Diario de Cuba, a worry from Los Angeles that Brazil’s engagement is supporting the “Chinese model.”  I don’t know that Brazil is supporting any political model in Cuba, but it is trying to assist in economic reform and improvement.  My guess is that the Brazilian government would say that Cuba’s politics should be decided by Cubans.
