HAVANA (AP) U.S. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker is calling on the Cuban government to let private enterprise thrive on the communist-ruled island and to grant its citizens have greater access to the Internet.

Pritzker is in Cuba for two days, leading a delegation of officials from the U.S. Treasury, Commerce and State departments for meetings with officials from Cuban government ministries and businesses.

She started her visit Tuesday with a stop at the Mariel free trade zone outside the capital of Havana and spoke Wednesday at the start of meetings between officials from both countries.

The commerce secretary is the most senior U.S. official to travel to Cuba since Secretary of State John Kerry visited on Aug. 14.
