Cuban Tobacco Production Increases

Pinar del Rio, August 19 (RHC) -– The tobacco harvest in the western province of Pinar del Rio will conclude with an additional 3,400 tons over those collected in the previous campaign.

Pinar del Rio, a territory in the western end of the island, is world-renowned for the quality of its tobacco crops.

Officials of the sector asserted that despite the drought currently affecting Cuba, the 2014-2015 harvest marked the beginning of the recovery of the tobacco sector, with a new development plan for the expansion of crops and processing facilities until 2018.
