As part of an intense work agenda in the country's municipalities, Miguel Díaz-Canel, First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) and President of the Republic, arrived today in Majibacoa , in the eastern province of Las Tunas., reported the Presidency in X.

The president's tour began on the farm of the Velázquez brothers, of the "Cuba Va" Credit and Services Cooperative, together with Roberto Morales Ojeda, member of the Political Bureau and Secretary of Organization of the Central Committee of the PCC. There he learned that in just 13 hectares these producers, with the use of science, achieve high yields in various crops, harvesting in previously unproductive soils.

It was explained that for 20 years, with patience, the Velázquez have irrigated tons of local organic matter, which now allows them to obtain crops that, this year, should leave two million pesos in profits. The farm is also dedicated to large and small livestock, on about 80 hectares.

In the dialogue, the President highlighted that this project validates the use of agroecological practices and was interested in the payments for the crops and the living conditions of the farmers. Good job, declared Díaz-Canel when confirming the work being done.

In the worst moments, things are being done here, Díaz-Canel reflected. During the tour he inquired about three of the main problems that the community still has, the leak in the multi-family buildings, the drainage problems of one of the main avenues of the town and the deterioration of the cooking equipment in the homes.

He stressed that although today there are serious material limitations, the most important thing is not to stop and do something every day, tearing a little piece out of each problem, always with the participation of the people.

This is the President's fifth visit to the eastern Cuban balcony, after checking the territories of Manatí, Puerto Padre, Jesús Menéndez and Amancio Rodríguez.
