Artemisa, Cuba - The Vice President of the Republic of Cuba, Salvador Valdés Mesa, checks in the province of Artemisa the progress of programs aimed at food production, with the purpose of boosting the supplies of agricultural products to the province and the country's capital.
The Cuban leader also notes the progress of the work to recover crops, especially bananas, after the impact of the Tropical Storm Laura through the south of the territory.
The Cuban vice president insists on working with greater organization and discipline to grow in cultivable hectares in the current cold season, because the nation needs greater volumes of crops in times of intensification of the blockade against Cuba and the effects of the Covid-19 on the worldwide economy.
He is accompanied by Gladys Martínez Verdecia, president of the Provincial Defense Council and its vice president Ricardo Concepción Rodriguez.
