FM Rodriguez highlights Cuba's economic measures in Covid-19 times
Havana, May 18 (Prensa Latina) Cuba's Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez noted this Monday that the country prioritizes planning, increases savings and seeks solutions to replace imports in the face of the economic difficulties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
On Twitter, the FM stressed that the pandemic changed the daily life of all the countries of the world, affecting not only health systems, but also their economies.
Rodriguez pointed out that 'with security and determination, Cuba is advancing' in the face of Covid-19 disease, a fact confirmed by the Ministry of Public Health (MINSAP), reporting the least figure of new cases- nine and no deaths this Sunday.
Recently, Cuba's Council of Ministers made a group of decisions to plan the recovery and 'everything that the country will do in the future and in the closest present to also face the economic crisis associated with this pandemic', according to President Miguel Diaz-Canel.
Rodriguez underscored that in the face of the global crisis, the country is preparing, not only to confront the current world situation, but also to continue transforming its economic and social model.
Cuba, with an open economy, is impacted by the drastic reduction of its income sources due to the pandemic.
The country was forced to close ports and airports, hotels and other facilities and services that generate foreign exchange, so necessary for a country blocked by the strongest economic and military power on the planet.
As explained by the Deputy Prime Minister Alejandro Gil Fernandez, it is essential to protect exports, prioritize national production of food, medicine and hygiene, among other priorities.
In addition to intensifying measures to save resources of all kinds, not just energy; and ensuring productive life and the trade of basic resources.
