Import substitution among the priorities of the Camagüey’s citizens

Camagüey, Cuba, Feb. 19.- The saving of energy and material resources, the substitution of imports, the effective use of the resources available to the province and the increase in exports are targets for 2020 of the Department of Foreign Trade, Foreign Investment and International Economic Collaboration in Camagüey.

The above happened in the Balance of Work Assembly of 2019 that was held at the Government headquarters in the province.

The information offered by Juan Ricardo Pol, delegate of the department, states that the territory produces 24 lines and three types of services for export.

Juan Ricardo said that the export plan amounted to 166 million 678 thousand pesos, reaching only 86 million 440 thousand 900 USD less than planned and with a decrease of five million 200 thousand USD.

Despite the breaches, it was over-complied with frozen lobster, swim bladder, sea cucumber, cobo, citrus, honey, agricultural charcoal, bronze scrap, Gavac vaccine, organic avocado and Porvac vaccine, among others.

It was insisted that the overcompliances are below the export potential of the province and by 2020 that area is also arranged to increase the participation of the national industry and promote productive linkage with foreign entities.

Camagüey agriculture complied with export plans, with the exception of tobacco, although it was not in tune with the claim to encourage different lines that are not within the reach of the population and also for export.

In the course of the assembly it was urged to find solutions to the objective problems with the effort of those who participate in the production.

It was also called upon to use the potentials of the Agramontine province to include new high-quality lines for export in sectors such as Fisheries and Agriculture, among many others. (Text and photos: Lázaro David Najarro Pujol / Radio Camagüey)(Translated by Linet Acuña Quilez)
