Havana, October 18 (RHC) --The Ministry of Labor and Social Security (MTSS) of Cuba inaugurated a social and labor observatory, which will increase the effectiveness of public policies adopted in the country, according to news reports.
In the act of the Constitution, the minister of the sector, Marta Elena Feitó, commented that the entity will have the mission of participating in the design, management, and evaluation of decisions aimed at social and labor development and advising organizations in the solution of problems present in different areas.
In addition, the instrument will make it possible to close the gaps identified and contribute to the nation's economic development. However, this will require the training of the personnel involved in its operation, she stressed.

We will have the possibility of touching with our hands the roots of the problems, anticipating their complexity and proposing solutions with perspectives', said Galtés.
