More and more local development projects are establishing working links with the tourism sector, a potential that is now being exploited by Confecciones textiles, an enterprise from the municipality of Chambas that is making its way into hotels in the northern keys of Ciego de Ávila, such as the Muthu Colonial Cayo Coco.
Maylié Sánchez Jiménez, head of this project, explained that its social purpose is the elaboration of textile elements that could be provided to hotel facilities through productive chains, as is the case of uniforms and lingerie that, in many cases, are acquired in other markets with the consequent expenditure of foreign currency.
Sánchez Jiménez added that some of their products are currently marketed in the province industrial product stores, as well as in the stores that collect foreign currency, particularly in the CIMEX entities, a chain of which they are regular suppliers thanks to the quality of their products.
The establishment of productive chains between the so-called «industry without chimneys» and the local development projects is an effective way to replace imports and guarantee part of the inputs needed by hotels, hence the top management of the province advocates for their increase in order to enhance national autonomy.
