Economy- The Economy Restructuring Process in Santiago de Cuba is moving forward with the productive and service activity towards the economic vitality of the province based on the rigorous application of the hygienic-sanitary measures and the new orientations.
The economy in the province of Santiago de Cuba is already marching with the most important transformation it has ever undergone in its monetary and exchange structure.
It also implies a move towards the elimination of excessive subsidies and undue gratuities, as well as the beginning of a reform of wages, pensions and social assistance benefits, which modifies the income of the population.
Economy- Just in the year when a historic 8th Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba will be held, one of the most complex and decisive agreements of the two previous meetings is implemented with regard to the invigoration of the economy; although the ideal conditions have not been created, delaying its application would have implied prolonging several deformations that would prevent the achievement of the development rates proposed by the country’s economic-social strategy, and which would be added to those heavy burdens represented by the intensified blockade of the United States and the deep impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Economy- Conceived and applied without going through any of the shock formulas which, with the devaluation, would result in automatic peaks of unemployment, insolvency, lack of social protection and other effects contrary to our socialist system. To face this decision has been more difficult because it means to do it without breaking one of the principles that sustain the human and social vocation of the Revolution.
Nevertheless, in the quest to have more vigorous capacities to maintain such conquests, and to take great steps towards the prosperity we require, it was necessary to be more daring in the revaluation of the role of labor, in the redistribution of the existing wealth, and in the creation of favorable conditions for a greater efficiency of the economy.
In this endeavor, unity as a country must continue to be the key that will lead us to the success of this complex process that demands from Cubans to align ourselves to place labor as the main source of development, and to articulate ourselves in the firm confrontation of those who seek to profit–for the benefit of a very few and at the expense of the majority–through an opportunism that perverts or slows down this leap of the nation to the path of sustainable progress.
