Cuba, the most populous country in the Caribbean, is one of the last communist regimes in the world. The government controls the economy and employs more than 80 percent of the working force. While the most important sector of the economy is services (around 75 percent of GDP), mining, oil production, remittances and tourism are crucial in supporting state revenue. Since the US has maintained a trade embargo against Cuba for over 50 years, growth prospects remain weak. Yet inthe last few years, in order to boost the economy, the government has initiated some market reforms like allowing setting up small businesses and property ownership.
