The Prime Minister gave details of the new measures, which were presented to Cuban lawmakers during the Second Session of Parliament in December 2023. He recalled that some of them were already published on the country’s Official Gazette.

Meanwhile, the Cuban President said that the new measures will not be implemented till appropriate conditions are created in the country and such implementation will take place progressively, considering the persons who are considered in vulnerable conditions.

Diaz-Canel stressed priorities for this period of work such as the strengthening of national unity, based on the statements y Revolution leader Raul Castro Ruz in his speech marking the 65th anniversary of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution in Santiago de Cuba; the strengthening of ideological work; the political support of each approved measure and the systematic discussion on negative trends affecting Cuban society.
