Abstract

Cuba has since the fall of the Soviet Union been running large trade deficits and its government has urged the Cuban firms to become more export oriented. This thesis aims to examine the Cuban export potential towards its largest export markets in the EU. A gravity model is estimated using panel data for the years 2010 to 2014 containing exports from developing countries towards the 35 OECD members. The results suggest that, overall, there is room for growth in Cuban exports towards the EU. However, the results should be taken into account with caution due to the limitations of the thesis. It could prove difficult for Cuba to reach its full potential in the EU market due to current political situations and trade barriers.

Kuba har sedan Sovjetunionens upplösning haft stora handelsunderskott och Kubas regering har uppmanat landets företag att bli mer exportorienterade. Denna kandidatuppsats kommer beräkna Kubas exportpotential till deras största exportmarknader i EU. En gravitationsmodell estimeras med hjälp av paneldata från 2010 till 2014 bestående av exporter från utvecklingsländer till de 35 OECD medlemmarna. Resultaten fastställer att det finns utrymme för Kuba att öka sina exporter till EU. Men på grund av begränsningarna av uppsatsen bör resultaten tolkas med försiktighet. I det nuvarande läget kan det dock vara svårt för Kuba att nå sin fulla potential i EU:s marknad med anledning av politiska relationer och handelshinder.
