CEOs of Xerox, Marriott to join Pres. Obama to Cuba

HAVANA, Cuba (WLS) -- President Barack Obama is traveling to Cuba next week and his delegation will include the CEOs of Xerox and Marriott.

The visit is an effort to help kickstart a business relationship that has yet to flourish.

U.S. airlines are set to start commercial flights to the island this summer and a U.S. tractor company has won approval to build a factory near Havana.

The Wall Street Journal has reported that Marriott and Starwood could announce their own deals during the trip.

In addition, AT&T could join Sprint and Verizon in providing roaming services on the island.
