On Wednesday, Economy and Planning Minister Alejandro Gil gave a lecture on the importance of productive chains, which he described as a major need for the country.
He also noted the need for local development based on the endogenous resources of each territory, and called to disconnect from the dependence on imports.
For his part, ANEC President Oscar Luis Hung referred to nearly 80,000 members of the organization who are committed to improving Cuba’s economy.
He added that over the past five years, the ANEC has developed strong alliances with agencies and institutions.
Hung highlighted the training of delegates, people’s council presidents and other officials from the People’s Power Economic Commissions to master the tools for supervision and control.
