An analysis of the impact of Second World War on Cuban sugar commerce. Since years before the war, Cuba regulated sugar exports in connection with the American sugar quotas and the International Sugar Agreement signed in London, in 1937. The current article studies the adaptation of this sugar trade system to the war conditions, mainly when Cuba sold the whole sugar harvest to the U.S., as well as the criteria of the principal interest groups in the Island about this commercial policy and the future of sugar economy.
