       阿拉巴马州港务局与古巴国家港务局签署了一份5年协议,两方将在港口和货物市场研究与战略方面加强合作,共同开展港口推广和展览活动,共享数据资源。
 
       阿拉巴马州港务局首席执行官James K. Lyons说道:“古美两国间商贸正常化的呼声越来越高涨。我们的目标就是促进港口与海事界的关系,以此推动两国商贸政策的调整,提高海洋运输能力,造福于托运人。”
 
       2016年10月,美国财政部海外资产控制办公室(OFAC)放宽了“禁止非美国籍船舶在古巴卸货后的180天内挂靠美国”的规定。
 
       修订后的规定使得船舶经营者能高效调动船舶,免去180天的等待期,但承运人必须遵守来自美方的其他全部限制。
 
       涉及古美两国许可贸易的承运人可免除180天的限制。此外,从世界各港口途经古巴到达美国的船舶若未载有未经许可的货物,皆可享受免除服务。
 
       阿拉巴马州与古巴之间的许可贸易主要包括禽类和木材。

Alabama, Cuba to Strengthen Maritime Ties
 
The Alabama State Port Authority and the National Port Administration of Cuba signed a five-year, cooperative agreement to collaborate in port and cargo marketing studies and strategies, engage in promotion and exhibition activities, and share data.
 
“We are seeing increasing demand for normalized trade between the United States and Cuba, and it is our goal to foster relationships between the ports and their maritime communities to further changes in U.S. Cuban trade policy and facilitate improved ocean carriage services to the benefit of our shippers,” James K. Lyons, chief executive officer of the Alabama State Port Authority, said.
 
In October 2016, the U.S. Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) eased the rule that prohibits a vessel that calls Cuba from entering a U.S. port within 180 days of its departure from Cuba.
 
While the amendment may allow vessel operators to efficiently deploy their vessels and avoid the 180-day waiting period, ocean carriers must nonetheless comply with all other U.S. restrictions in order to take advantage of the amended rule.
 
Ocean carries engaged in sanctioned trade between Cuba and the United States can take advantage of the 180-day rule waiver. In addition, ships originating from worldwide ports and transiting through Cuba can take advantage of the waiver as long as the carrier does not load non-sanctioned cargoes bound for the U.S.
 
U.S. sanctioned trade between Alabama and Cuba principally include poultry and forest products.
