09/26/13 - Philly.com - Cuba OKs more private businesses, new regulations
HAVANA (AP) - Cuban authorities have announced 18 new categories of
independent employment that will be permitted under President Raul
Castro's economic reforms.
They're also instituting restrictions intended to regulate private
entrepreneurs already in business.
Among the most notable of the newly allowed private professions are real
estate agents, who have long operated in the shadows.
Even after the government legalized the buying and selling of homes in
2011 for the first time in decades, it was still technically illegal to
make money connecting buyers with sellers.
