Havana, December 3 (RHC)-- A new produce commercialization system is underway in the western Cuban provinces of Havana, Artemisa and Mayabeque aimed at lowering prices, eliminating intermediaries and making commercialization more dynamic and efficient in produce markets.
The new system was stipulated by a decree-law published on Cuba's Official Gazette on November 6th, which includes the rules to be applied to the changes. These introduce as a new element in farmer cooperatives enabling them to fully manage produce commercialization in different areas of the provinces.
The initiative, which is expected to improve variety at the markets, if successful will be later expanded to other Cuban provinces.
Cuba imports a huge amount of foodstuffs from the international market, and the island is currently pursuing a strategy to replace such costly imports with local production. The increase of food production is a major thrust in new economic guidelines adopted by the Cuban Communist Party.
