Sept. 29 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. needs to open up trade relations with Cuba, said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke.

President Barack Obama believes the U.S. needs to “open up our trade relations and our exchange of people and travel and that many of the restrictions with Cuba need to be lifted,” Locke told reporters today in Santiago, Chile.
