Cuban Leader Insists in Larger Sugar Production

Puerto Padre, December 27 (RHC)-- Cuba´s biggest sugar mill, Antonio Guiteras – which is ready to begin operations in the current sugar harvest – was visited by the island´s Vice President Jose Ramon Machado Ventura, who discussed with the factory’s management and the local trade union the preparations for an efficient industrial process.

Machado, who is also the Second Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba, said that day-to-day operations should run smoothly and that the mill should produce high quality sugar as it is prepared to do.

According to ACN news agency, the Cuban leader warned against interruptions in the process. The mill is scheduled to grind nearly ten thousand tons of sugar cane every day and in order to meet this goal, the number of hectares planted with sugar cane has increased this year.

The Guiteras sugar mill, in the eastern Cuban province of Las Tunas, will begin grinding operations on January 9th and will close in May.

Besides sugar, the Guiteras factory will produce electricity, bagasse wooden panels, alcohol, rum and other derivatives.
