Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel stated on Monday that the new economic measures will be implemented gradually, with special attention to people in vulnerable situations. The statement was made at the first ordinary session of the year of the Council of State, which analyzed the implementation schedule of the Government projections to correct distortions and re-boost the economy.

Havana, Cuba.- The head of State stressed that the new provisions would be enforced also taking into account the principle of the Revolution that no one will be left helpless and that everyone must assume the responsibility corresponding to their control and monitoring.

In this regard, he highlighted the role of the National Assembly of the People's Power  (Parliament) in the systematic verification of the results, accompanied by solid political communication.

The Parliament reported on its website that Díaz-Canel explained that there are four priorities for this stage of work, which are the strengthening of national unity, based on the elements raised by the leader of the Revolution, Raúl Castro, in his speech on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the Triumph of the Revolution in Santiago de Cuba, as well as the strengthening of ideological work, the political assurance of the measures approved in the National Assembly and the systematic discussion on negative trends in Cuban society.

At the meeting, Prime Minister Manuel Marrero updated the members of the Council of State on the communication actions to inform the people about the new economic measures.

Marrero pointed out that “the political and communication assurance of its implementation and the support of the factors in all instances are fundamental providing the largest amount of information to the people, to clarify any concerns.”

Council of State President Esteban Lazo highlighted that in this process, Cuba’s unity is essential to promote the fulfillment of the goals set to achieve the best results, especially in the neighborhoods and communities, with the decisive work of the delegates. (PL)
