Cuban agriculture requires investments at a rate of 900 million pesos a year until 2030, just to ensure the economic and social recovery that is currently underway in the industry. Among the investment priorities are those aimed at reducing imports and increasing exports of rice, beans, corn, milk, meat and other products, as well as incorporating new productive capacities into the economy.
Among the main projections of the 2021-2030 investment plan are agricultural production and its industrial processing from various programs such as grains, viands and vegetables, citrus, fruit trees and tobacco.
Urban, suburban and family agriculture will also be prioritized, with the rehabilitation of all giant organoponics in order to increase the cultivation of vegetables, condiments and fruits for local consumption.
The MINAGRI has made average annual investments worth 514 million pesos in the last five years, aimed at improving infrastructure, the recovery and expansion of productive capacities, modernization and introduction of agricultural technologies, equipment and implements.
