Commenting on the discussions underway in the Cuban Parliament Committees, President Miguel Diaz-Canel reiterated on Twitter that the intention of the Cuban government is to make a selective investment on key and prioritized sectors of the economy, which are very well defined by Cuban laws, always defending the independence and sovereignty of the island.
The Cuban leader also praised on Twitter the work of the Parliament Committees, and he spoke about how the work of the Parliament in the solution of the island’s people every day issues, is being supported by the efforts of the central government.
