Delegates and guests to the session of the governmental body recalled the key role played by Fidel —who passed away last November 25th— in the design and monitoring of the implementation of programs linked to the development of agriculture, water resources, roads, public health, industry and education, among other areas, which made him paid innumerable visits to the territory after the revolutionary triumph in 1959.

The President of the Provincial Assembly, Teresita Romero Rodríguez, said that the best tribute to the late Cuban statesman would be the tangible fulfillment of the concept of Revolution, which he enunciated on May 1st, 2000, during the celebration of the International Workers’ Day in Havana.

The governmental body evaluated the progress and deficiencies identified in programs such as the granting of subsidies, the supply of popular gastronomy services, and the quality of the accommodation system, among others.

Teresita Romero Rodríguez conveyed a recognition to the people for their commitment to different socio-productive endeavours that earned the territory the venue for the 26th of July commemoration after 30 years of having deserved such a stimulus for the first time.

On the other hand, the member of the Central Committee of the Party and its first secretary in Sancti Spíritus, Jose Ramón Monteagudo Ruiz highlighted the results of the province in different economic indicators, as well as the historical records obtained in pig production, meat industry, shrimp farming and the sale of cow milk to state entities.
