A man refills a lighter at his stall on a street in Havana
A man refills a lighter at his stall on a street in Havana October 23, 2013. Cuba took the first step towards scrapping its two-tier currency on October 22, 2013, in a move which could boost local workers' income and remove a major hurdle for importers and exporters. Cuba's convertible peso (CUC) is pegged to the U.S. dollar, while the local peso (CUP) is valued at a fraction of the greenback's value, angering the population which is paid in the latter, and complicating accounting, the evaluation of performance, and trade for state companies. The writing on the wall in the background reads, "Socialism". REUTERS/Desmond Boylan (CUBA - Tags: SOCIETY BUSINESS EMPLOYMENT)

Cuban Cohiba "Behike" cigars are displayed for sale at the price of 29 Cuban convertible pesos (CUC), (31.33 USD) per unit in a Havana bar February 21, 2011. Cuban cigar sales rose 2 percent in 2010 as smokers in China and the Middle East helped counter the effects of anti-smoking laws sweeping the globe, Cuban cigar executives said on Monday. They said China climbed over Germany to become the third largest market behind Spain and France for Habanos S.A., the worldwide distributor of Cuban cigars, which generated $368 million in sales last year.
