Díaz-Canel assesses economic progress in Sancti Spiritus

Sancti Spíritus, Cuba, May 30 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel met on Thursday with workers and managers in Yaguajay municipality, in Sancti Spíritus, to learn about the status of the economic and social programs on the territory.

Accompanied by the secretary of organization of the Communist Party of Cuba, Roberto Morales, the head of State visited the Mérida Dairy Products Business Unit, a company that has achieved its goals despite the complex global context.

The Presidency of the Republic reported on X that Díaz-Canel had noted the company’s productive management and reflected on why other groups in the sector do not achieve the same results.
