The deputy prime minister referred to elements approved in the Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC). We are working on all areas at the same time, based on the implementation of the strategy for this development during the so-called new normality. Thirteen of Cuba’s fifteen provinces are open to economic activities, including Havana, with some particularities.
Gil noted that there has been no rest to achieve the development of the country’s economy.
He insisted on the need to speed up those conditions for the economy. That scenario is important, he added.
The biggest progress is taking place in transportation, tourism and telecommunications, said the minister, adding that the strategy is not a list of tasks, but a group of deep transformations in the economy.
Gil mentioned five key elements: food production and commercialization, incentives to exports, transformations in the entrepreneurial system, improvement of self-employment and the country’s monetary ordering.
