Cienfuegos, Cuba, Dec 3 (ACN) The 2021-20221 Cuban sugar harvest kicked off Friday with the start of operations by the “14 de Julio sugar mill” in highly productive sugar plant in the south-central province of Cienfuegos.
Located in the Municipality of Rodas, the sugar factory started its machinery to grind sugar cane in a 77-day campaign.
The start of operations at the factory was attended by Communist Party Secretary in Cienfuegos Maryde Fernandez and the province’s governor Alexandre Corona. The Party leader said that local sugar workers will undertake a short but efficient sugar campaign.
Sugar factory director Amaury Rodriguez said that his mill is expected to yield over 17 thousand tons of sugar. The Cienfuegos sugar factory boasts of high efficiency despite a fall in the Cuban sugar output due to the effects of the US economic, commercial and financial blockade of the island, the executive noted.
