Will Cuba’s “Self-Employed” Advance in 2019?

2018 was a bad year, according to some self-employed workers in Cuba who we regularly consult for our features.

The government experimented and faltered and that led to a high level of uncertainty among private sector workers and the many others who aspire to working on their own. There has especially been a lot of tension since 2017 when new rules were announced and implemented a year and a half later, in December 2018.

If we take a look at this year that has recently drawn to a close, we can see that there were several turning points for this sector, which today comprises 15% of the country’s total labor force and brought in 12% of the country’s total tax revenue in 2017.
