WTDC Sponsors two scholarships for MDC Students

On April 5th, Ralph L. Gazitua, WTDC Chairman, presented $1000 scholarships to Brianna Gutierrez and Francisco Caraballo of Miami-Dade College (MDC).

Both students attended MDC speaking engagements by Mr. Gazitua and participated in an essay contest he announced in each one. The contest winner would best recap the key points of the speech in an essay submitted to WTDC. We are happy to say both essays really resonated with Mr. Gazitua and the stories of the winners moved us.

USA & Cuba Relations Update:

OFAC licenses continue to be issued in Trump administration

Aviation impact on Miami-Dade County

From air cargo and passenger services to repair parts and service, the aviation and aerospace industries continue to have a significant impact on Miami-Dade County. Miami Herald writer Joseph Mann recently wrote a great article touching on the many ways aviation provides for our community. Below is an excerpt from the article:

“Building on its early 20th-century history as a commercial and military flight center, Miami is thrusting deeper into the aviation cosmos, increasing its presence as an international nexus for aviation and aerospace services. In the past five years, local aviation-sector jobs have grown from a total of $1.2 billion in payroll to $2 billion, now accounting for one of every four local jobs.”

USA & Cuba Relations Update:

OFAC licenses continue to be issued in Trump administration

To date, no major changes have been made to U.S-Cuba policy by the Trump administration to roll back changes made during the Obama administration. A recent article in the Miami Herald listed examples of U.S. companies that have received special permission to operate on the island. U.S.-based broadcast and video facility company Cuba International Network was recently awarded an OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control) license allowing them to do business with Cuban radio and television company RVA.
