Rafael Ernesto Simón, president of the Santiago de Cuba ANIR (Innovators’ League) branch responds to CMKC about the challenges for this year 2021:
We need unity of talents and the promotion of inventiveness to fight the extension of the covid-19 outbreaks and advance in the economic ordering task in Santiago as in the whole country.
«The current year has been marked by strong economic and financial limitations, derived from the cruel imperialist blockade that we have resisted for more than sixty years, and by the effects caused by the covid-19 pandemic.
The leadership of the Party and Government with the participation of the mass organizations, the workers and the people in general have put into practice a group of exceptional measures, with the objective of protecting the population and maintaining the vitality of the economy.
«From the month of March to date, multiple initiatives have been implemented by the population, and particularly, by the workers with the active participation of the public health and science system of the country, among other no less outstanding sectors.»
Further on, the call includes the admirable response of men and women in the front line of combat, the presence in health, science and production; the work against covid-19, the guarantee of food production, key services, among other priorities of the economy.
The call of ANIR urges to respond to all the needs and demands of the economy, society, scientific research, in energy saving and, at the same time, to dignify those who contribute and do not waste talent to overcome every obstacle.
