The Party Political Bureau has agreed to recognize the province of Cienfuegos by selecting its capital city as the venue for the national commemoration of the 69th anniversary of the assaults on the Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Céspedes garrisons, July 26.

Notable advances have been achieved in community cultural work, artistic education and the preservation of heritage sites.
Science and innovation institutions, led by the Party and government, with the active participation of Carlos Rafael Rodríguez University, had a favorable impact in a variety of sectors and local development projects.
The main political processes and programs of the Revolution have enjoyed broad popular support and participation.
Progress made in government work was noted during the last review conducted in the territory by the country’s national leadership.
In congratulating the province of Cienfuegos, the Political Bureau extends heartfelt recognition to the entire Cuban people, who have risen to the occasion in the face of adversity and starred in one of the most beautiful pages of heroism and dedication in defense of the nation and our colossal social justice project, despite continuous imperialist aggression.
