Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel Sits Down With “The Nation”

November 3, 2023
In late September, The Nation’s publisher, Katrina vanden Heuvel, and its editor, D.D. Guttenplan, met with Cuban president Miguel Díaz-Canel for an exclusive interview in New York. It was the president’s first-ever interview in the United States.

They discussed the economic crisis facing his island nation, the future of its socialist model, and the impact of continued hostility from Washington. “We have to build, strengthen, and develop this socialist economy without forgetting the conditions of the world in which we live,” Díaz-Canel remarked.
