The National Economic and Social Development Plan until 2030, based on science, and whose implementation is among the country’s priorities, includes six macro-programs, around 30 programs and more than one hundred projects.

According to Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy and Planning, Alejandro Gil Fernandez, at a recent press conference, its implementation “will allow us to advance in medium and long term strategies that will avoid improvisations.”

They will be implemented by the Ministry of Economy and Planning.

Among the projects included in the National Plan is that of geological and mining development, which contemplates the projections of the sectors, focused, fundamentally, towards the multiplication of exports.

Juan Ruiz Quintana, general director of Mining, of the Ministry of Energy and Mines, assured, in his Twitter account, that “the geological development project foresees to grow in the productions, increase exports and develop mining products with higher added value.”

The project is aimed at the development of mining products with higher added value.”

The project will be implemented by the Ministry of Energy and Mines.

In another message, he indicated that “work is being done in the search for new offers and markets to which to take Cuban minerals and other derivative productions.”

It is worth highlighting that the portfolio of opportunities for Geology and Mining in Cuba structures projects in four strategic regions of the country and the special municipality Isla de la Juventud, according to the information published on the website of the trading company Geominera S.A., a negotiating and service entity.
