During a meeting with authorities of Ciego de Avila to evaluate the behavior of the food sovereignty program, the executive acknowledged that there are still untapped reserves in the territory.

He suggested ensuring compliance with contracts and negotiating all productions, as well as complying with the provisions of the commercialization network so that the productive bases sell directly, without intermediaries, and achieve lower prices.

He emphasized that the province is a strategic pillar in the country in food production, due to the quality of its lands and its innovative capacity, with large companies that pay contributions to other provinces, which must also contribute to municipal self-sufficiency.

The province has technology and irrigation systems that place it at the forefront of the nation to achieve food sovereignty and be the first to reach 30 pounds of agricultural products per capita per month, Valdes added.

The Cuban Vice President pointed out that the increase in agricultural production is a way to help the country reduce the burden of imports that make up the standard family food basket.
