Cuba investment in the Caribbean islands

Development of new Cuban port aims to attract international investment.

    At a cost of almost a billion dollars, Cuba's newest port is being hailed as a sign of its growing economic strength.

    The facility built, with Brazil's help, is set to provide a much-needed commercial link to the rest of the world.

    But with so much investment going to Cuba, other nations in the Caribbean are worried about the potential impact on their economies.
