dc.description.abstract It is not entirely obvious whether the Cuban state required a private partner to manage the water supply in Havana—particularly one so closely tied to a major hotel operator in the tourism sector in the country. Nor is it clear that this joint venture was an attempt to maintain socialism under a new managerial rubric. Largely associated with the neoliberalization of the world economy, it comes as a surprise to many that the socialist government of Cuba signed a 25-year contract with a Spanish multinational in 2000 to manage the supply of water in Havana. en
