The people must participate in all programs meant to benefit them
Given that all government programs have as their fundamental goal improving the population’s wellbeing, the community must be where results are evident, which means that the people’s participation in these processes must be promoted by the Party
Given that all government programs have as their fundamental goal improving the population’s wellbeing, the community must be where results are evident, which means that the people’s participation in these processes must be promoted by the Party.
This idea was emphasized in a Saturday meeting of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee Secretariat, led by its First Secretary and President of the Republic, Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, with all the organization’s provincial committee first secretaries, in which, among other issues, comprehensive attention provided neighborhoods and communities was reviewed, an issue which has also been the focus of accountability assemblies and local visits by national Party leaders.
“These programs have a transversal impact across society, at all levels, but it is in the community, in People’s Councils, in the neighborhood, where their main actors and beneficiaries are, hence the importance of their being well understood and popular participation,” noted Roberto Morales Ojeda, Political Bureau member and Secretary for Organization.
According to the Party website, also discussed were efforts to support the implementation of government measures to increase food production; the sugar harvest; attention to all economic actors; and confronting inflation.
Indicators of the Party’s performance at the end of 2021; the organization’s attention to the cultural sector; as well as the family doctor and nurse program, were also topics addressed at the meeting.
Additionally, information was provided on a new system to supervise programs and projects that contribute to government macro-programs; the development of social communication in the country was discussed; and the fight against racial discrimination was reviewed, along with work done to promote the advancement of women, democracy, institutionality, and social prevention at all levels.
