Such projects are inextricably linked, and we must approach them not as a fully complete work, or see them with static, dogmatic prspective, but at the end of the debates of this 7th Congress they will be the subjects of periodical evaluations, he said.
The Cuban president said these projets are the result of collective work, involving university professors, scholars, researchers of economic ans social sciences and officials of the Government and the PCC.

In this regard, Raul Castro urged PCC members, the members of the Young Communist League and representatives of the mass organizations and broad sectors of the population to discuss democratically these issues after their analysis in Congress in order to enrich and improve them.
On the process of updating of the Island, he said Cuba is steady on its feet, going forward without haste but without pause, gradually and comprehensively, for the country to succeed.
