We must move beyond the blockade with our talent, effort and participation, says Diaz Canel

CIEGO DE AVILA, Cuba (ACN) Miguel Diaz-Canel, first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) and president of the country, called today in Ciego de Avila(central region) to move forward, “to go over the blockade with our own talent, with our effort and participation”.

During an exchange with residents of the People’s Council of Ceballos, as part of his visit to the province, he recalled that 2021 was a tough year, marked by the COVID-19 pandemic and the tightening of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the US government on Cuba.

However, despite our own economic problems, he said, we have the population vaccinated (against COVID-19), the booster dose is already available, there is more trust and the borders have been opened.

Accompanied by Roberto Morales Ojeda, secretary of Organization and Cadre Policy of the Central Committee of the PCC, and Carlos Luis Garrido Perez, secretary of the PCC in the province, among other authorities, the president visited centers of the community of about 15, 000 inhabitants, such as the Levan Kikava boarding school, the rehabilitation room, a doctor’s office and a warehouse.

Diaz-Canel was interested in the controlled sales of beef by private producers and other alternatives that improve the offers to the population, as well as in the state of the roads and projections.

Cuban leader insisted that things should be done with quality, making the budget available according to priorities and promoting local development.

He explained that there is a program to gradually solve these difficulties, with the participation of all, and urged to create mechanisms of popular control to ensure that resources are used properly.

Cuban president called for not separating cadres, leaders and people, because all of us, he said, come from the people, that is why we all have to criticize and also collaborate to overcome the problems.

The population, Diaz Canel noted, has every right to demand accountability and transparency in the work we carry out, bearing in mind that we cannot solve all the difficulties at the same time, that is why it is so important to make a careful diagnosis and to determine the priorities together with the people.

Another of the places visited Friday was the Basic Business Unit (UEB) Vegetable Production of the Ceballos Agroindustrial Company, which excels for its productive results and for contributing to the export center of the province headed by its entity.

Exnier Gonzalez Suarez, its director, explained that in total yield they reach 45 tons per hectare, although the figure changes from one crop to another, while maintaining an upward behavior of productivity above what was planned, as well as income and profits.

The UEB has among its flagship products the hot bell pepper Chile Habanero, which since 2016 maintained a sustained increase in exports, reaching 72 tons in 2021.
