Food production and agriculture, as primary sectors, have to develop. It is a pending task that we must solve, despite the low availability of resources and the blockade by the US government, he pointed out.

At a meeting on Wednesday with state and business authorities, scientists and experts to evaluate the implementation of the Government Management System based on Science and Innovation in agriculture, Diaz-Canel stressed the need to promote the agricultural sector.

According to the Presidency’s website, Minister of Agriculture Idael Perez identified at a meeting, among the main challenges, those related to the human potential, the productive sector, knowledge, financing and territorial development.

One of the biggest challenges, the official explained, is to guarantee the permanence of the workforce (worker, technical and professional), first of all, direct to the field, in addition to making it grow in number and improve their training.

He highlighted the need to realize the principle of more production with less expenditures through the use of science and innovation.

Prime Minister Manuel Marrero affirmed that in order to solve the problems, a change of mentality of the leaders is essential.

A single cadre who resists changes is a wall for progress, despite the will of the collectives and the Government, he explained.

For her part, Deputy Prime Minister Ines Maria Chapman insisted, among other issues, on the development of local food systems as the fundamental link for applying science and innovation.

At the conclusions of the meeting, President Diaz-Canel summoned scientists, promoting their participation in the construction and implementation of their projects.
