Motorcycle and car sales in Cuba, a market opening
The Cuban lawmakers have abolished the 1959 law which forbade citizens to freely buy motorcycles or cars. That law required the buyers to get a permission first from state authorities and then to purchase whatever was available on the market.
A 100% tax was imposed on any new car or bike, making the prices in this country possibly the highest around the world. Indicatively a used 10 years old French car could cost 18000 USD and would be sold without changing the name on the registration since that would be forbidden.
