The Permanent Mission of Cuba to the United Nations denounced that the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on this Caribbean country interferes in the income of Cuban industry, the Cuban foreign ministry's website (Cubaminrex) reported today.
The Angel Villareal Bravo Industrial Enterprise, in Villa Clara province (central Cuba), will produce some 10,000 electric bicycles this year, the highest figure since its incorporation to that production line, said Elier Perez, general director of the institution.
The factory, also known as Ciclos Minerva, reached 25 million pesos in sales of electric bicycles and tricycles in 2020, a number above what was planned.
Cuban state-run Information Technology companies have begun to assist imports and exports by the private sector in the field, in tune with the country’s economic and social strategy approved by the Cuban government last year.
In Cuba, rice production is a priority task due to its importance for the population, and in order to increase the availability of the grain, several development programs are being carried out, including the import and domestic production of machinery.
Currently, to supply the country with the necessary amount of rice, more than two thirds of the total demand is imported, usually from very distant regions.
