In Ciego de Avila: moving forward from its own potentialities

Inés María Chapman Waugh, Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic, toured productive entities in the province of Ciego de Ávila to learn about the mechanisms to advance in the development of the country, in the midst of economic and financial difficulties, based on the country’s intelligence and its own efforts.

At the Empresa Agropecuaria La Cuba, in the municipality of Baraguá, Chapman Waugh learned about the implementation of the system of government based on science and innovation in that instance, and the margins of improvement that they still have in that sense.

The functioning of the Technical Advisory Council (CTA) must be improved through the participation of experts, scientists and academics from other centers, in addition to the contributions of the members of the entity’s board of directors, said Chapman Waugh.

The meeting also revealed that the intention is to seek strategic alliances with other sectors, companies and economic actors to carry out the projects of the CTA, which in the case of La Cuba would provide solutions to the most pressing problems, linked to the burned pumping equipment, the deficit of agricultural machinery and the lack of imported fertilizers and herbicides.

In this regard, the Vice Prime Minister emphasized the need to work on priorities in order to move forward, for which projects must be undertaken in pursuit of solutions, with a plan of action, responsible parties and a date for compliance.

Agricultural production is of strategic importance for the country, since by substituting food imports, these multi-million dollar amounts of foreign currency could be used to finance other fundamental activities of benefit to the population, besides having an impact on the reduction of inflationary processes, said Chapman Waugh.

To overcome the difficulties in importing resources, the La Cuba collective benefits from its biofertilizer center, which produces, among others, worm humus and a leachate rich in potassium from banana stalks, which are used in fertigation, demonstrating the contribution of microelements to the soil and a fungicide action against certain fungi and harmful bacteria.

The vice prime minister, accompanied throughout the visit by Antonio Rodríguez Rodríguez, president of the National Institute of Hydraulic Resources, also visited the children’s house «Los Cubanitos», in the agricultural company of Baragüense, with 15 capacities for children of working mothers, an element that contributes to the advancement of the Program for the Advancement of Women.

During the tour, Chapman Waugh and her entourage, which included Hiorvanys Espinosa Pérez, vice governor of the province, and other authorities of the territory, also visited the Ciegoplast High Density Polyethylene Pipe Company and the Zaza-Ciego transfer canal in the Majagua municipality to learn about its value for agriculture, livestock and fishing.
