The Cuban head of state visited the Cuba-Mexico Agricultural Cooperative that generates about 2,000 tons of food and grains, mainly earmarked for Havana.
In a meeting with Artemisa´s authorities and peasants, the Cuban president made inquiries about the implementation of 63 new measures approved to promote commercialization, import substitution and to ramp up exports.
According to a TV report, Díaz-Canel asked about responses to workers´ concerns and found that it is possible to increase yields in the face of shortage of inputs.
The Cuban president also toured the Niceto Pérez Credit and Services Cooperative, in Artemisa, especially La Rebeca farm.
These visits are part of the government meetings to check the sowing of previously idle lands, the workforce, wages, prices set to the population and autonomy in management, in view to the nation’s food sovereignty.
