Díaz-Canel visits neighborhoods and projects of municipalities in Havana


díaz-canel-barrio-768x622Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez arrived this morning to the La Concepción neighborhood, in the Havana municipality of La Lisa, to learn about the transformation actions being carried out with the aim of improving the quality of life of its more than 2,500 population.

Like this one, the Presidency published on Twitter, two other neighborhoods of the Arroyo Arena Popular Council are also immersed in rehabilitation work.

The installation of a telephone exchange, with 1,224 capacities, is one of the main approaches of the population to which a solution has been given.

In just over a year of continuous work in this community, streets have been paved, schools, warehouses and playgrounds restored, and work has been done on the conservation of multi-family buildings and sanitation work.

“It is a tremendous idea to link culture and sport! How many values ​​can be developed!” said the president upon arriving at the neighborhood Sports Center, a place where art and sport are promoted to educate and train.

When visiting different places in the community, Díaz-Canel insisted on the importance of participating as a group in the actions that are carried out. “We cannot let ourselves be overcome by difficulties!” He emphasized when talking with residents and managers.

Beach Project: How much has it impacted the community?

This Tuesday, the president also visited the El Bajo neighborhood, in the capital’s municipality of Playa, where the Yes Environments project is being developed.

Díaz-Canel was interested in knowing how much progress has been made in the purpose of giving social, economic and tourist use value to these areas.

Yoanka Estévez Salinas, project leader, explained to the head of state that several actors have participated in the rescue of this coastal farm, which began in June 2020 under a sustainable management plan. So far they have given employment to 42 people from the community.

The idea, explained Yoanka, is to preserve the existing infrastructure and, through comprehensive work, promote an agroecological project that links agriculture and art and that truly contributes to the community.

The key is to give people the chance to develop, Diaz-Canel said.

Where years ago the weeds grew, today you can enjoy a place – still in development – ​​that shows how much can be done when intelligence, desire to do things, commitment, nature, culture and good taste come together.

In the middle of the capital’s Vedado, a new project of the Cuban furniture industry comes to life, as part of which a disused warehouse-ship was restored. President Díaz-Canel arrived there this morning, the Presidency reported on his Twitter account.

In this project, designed basically for the population, the designers will interact with the clients, who will be able to find not only the options that the industry is selling, explained Antonio García, director of the Cuban furniture industry DUJO.

This is an example, highlighted the president, of how a socialist state company can be efficient. “You have to keep going and not stop!” He summoned them after touring the area and appreciating the good taste and finish of the productions arranged there.
