Díaz-Canel tours Aguada de Pasajeros municipality in Cienfuegos

Havana, Jun 28 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel visited economic centers of Aguada de Pasajeros municipality, in central Cienfuegos province, on Friday, in the context of the government visits that he makes nationwide.

The Cuban president’s tour started at the Vietnam Heróico Basic Unit of Cooperative Production (UBPC), which dedicates to sugarcane cultivation and has fulfilled for three consecutive years the supply plans to the Antonio Sánchez Sugar Company, the Presidency reported on its X account.

At the meetings, the president learned that although the UBPC honors its commitments, it does not achieve its historic productive yields, so he urged the group not to give up on this endeavor.

For this, the workers have looked for alternatives with biological products such as lebame: a biostimulant made up of microorganisms from the collection of the Cuban Institute of Research on Sugarcane Derivatives, which is mixed with final honey, ammonium sulfate and water.

They also develop the manual planting and cutting of sugarcane, the Presidency explained on X.

The Cuban president also spoke with the residents of the “Perseverancia” community, where People’s Council President Teresa González informed that water supply, the state of the roads and young people who neither study nor work are the main problems in the community, which has a population of 3,500 inhabitants.

Aguada de Pasajeros municipality is the third town in Cienfuegos province visited by Díaz-Canel in 2024.
