A 22-Day Journey Of 5,300 Miles Trumps 1-To-5-Day Journey Without Government Financing
Although vehicles manufactured/assembled/distributed in Alabama, Florida and Mississippi could be delivered from United States ports to ports within the Republic of Cuba in less than one and up to five days, Republic of Cuba government-operated entities (and government of the Republic of Cuba) will select vehicles delivered from the Russian Federation (or other source), an approximately 5,300 mile, twenty-two day journey, due to the provision of long-term financing, which, most importantly, the government of the Republic of Cuba believes may be rolled-over if required by financial circumstances.
