Updating the Cuban Economic Model is not a One-Day Task

by PrensaLatina
 RAUL CASTRO , Cuban President said during the expanded meeting of the Council of Ministers that updating the Cuban economic model is not a task of one day, or one year and, due to its complexity, the country needs at least a five-year period for its implementation.
All ideas emerging from discussions of the Economic and Social Policy Guidelines of the Draft Party Program will be analyzed, Cuban President Raul Castro stated.
  During a report released on the Cuban nightly TV news program, the president said those opinions are a formidable instrument for the leadership of the Party and Government.
Over 127,000 meetings, with some seven million Cubans participating, had been held nationwide as of Feb. 7, providing about 619,400 proposals, deletions, additions, changes, questions and concerns.
According to the report, the details of the discussion results will be revealed after the process concludes.
Updating the Cuban economic model is not a task of one day, or one year and, due to its complexity, the country needs at least a five-year period for its implementation, Raul Castro said during the expanded meeting of the Council of Ministers.
Referring to the process of reducing bloated payrolls in the state sector, the president said it is a measure aimed at recovering efficiency and discipline in the workplace under the principle of suitability and entitlement.
A task of that magnitude that affects so many people one way or another cannot be framed within rigid time periods, and its progress will depend on the ability to create organizational and legal conditions to ensure the successful start and control of development, Raul Castro noted.
Given the lag in beginning the process, the Cuban president said the timetable for its implementation should be adjusted, while at the same time, he reiterated that the State had no intention of abandoning a single citizen.
