Havana, Jun 11 (Prensa Latina) Cuba will improve its science, technology and innovation system, focusing on solving concrete problems and promoting sectors such as nanotechnology and artificial intelligence, it was announced on Monday.

The Minister of Science, Technology and Environment, Eduardo Martínez, and Deputy Minister Armando Rodríguez explained that Cuba has a portfolio of more than 6,500 projects and the priorities in science and innovation should focus on increasing foreign currency incomes by exporting goods and services, as well as increasing power generation, with emphasis on renewable sources, and increasing food production.

In statements to the Cubadebate website, both officials noted that among the tasks for such improvement is to increase investment in science and innovation.

The business system and local governments need more investment in science and innovation to develop themselves.

On the other hand, we need to take more advantage of international cooperation and the negotiation of intangible assets that are created in the development of the projects themselves,’ they added.
