Human Resources are Cuba’s Main Strength
HAVANA, Cuba, Dec 20 (ACN) Human resources constitute the main capital and strength of Cuba, said the president of the Cuban Chamber of Commerce Estrella Madrigal.
In statements to PL news agency in the city of Matanzas, Madrigal said that Cuban authorities have permanently invested in education and technical training, despite adverse economic situations.
At present, more than 70 percent of the country’s income stems from export services, including health, culture, sports and tourism.
“Cuba has an open economy, which depends on its exports, while the country looks forwards to the increasing diversification of its exports and the reduction of imports,” said Madrigal.
The year 2013 must mark a period of entrepreneurial maturity with important training and promotional actions, the executive noted and added that the Chamber of Commerce will increase its work with local managers in order to support the implementation of the economic and social guidelines aimed at updating the country’s economic model.
Other actions include the strengthening of commercial relations with major partners, such as Venezuela, China and Spain, as well as the island’s integration into the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC).
Madrigal made her statements during an annual meeting of associates with the Cuban Chamber of Commerce in the province of Matanzas.
