The Cuban ambassador in Tokyo, Miguel Angel Ramirez Ramos, stressed the importance of the discussions of the statute abroad, since this way a broad sector of the Cuban population participates, which also wants to contribute with its opinions to the conception of a law of great relevance for the development of their society.
Ramirez Ramos noted that this practice began during the popular consultation for the 2019 constitutional reform and involves in parallel the Cuban residents, who communicate their concerns, ideas and interests through digital platforms.
Mercedes Roque, member of the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs, affirmed that we are witnessing an important democratic international event, with a great impact on our society.
The discussion of the New Family Code, which is very advanced for Cuba, a country with macho characteristics, demonstrates the government’s confidence in the people and vice versa, Roque said.
During the debate, held at the headquarters of the Cuban embassy, the participants made about 15 proposals in the categories of addition, modification or elimination.
Other Cubans, such as the baseball players hired in Japan and the specialist Sunamis Fabeloc, from the International Policy Research Center, transmitted their considerations via videoconference.
