During the analysis this Friday of the scientific projects to increase food production in the country, Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel affirmed that there is still a lack of connection between knowledge and production.

The head of state told specialists from the National Innovation Council (a working group created during the covid pandemic made up of experts, officials and businessmen) that scientific results of greater impact have been recorded in the introduction of some varieties developed in Cuba, although the pace is slow.

Díaz-Canel assured that the Ministry of Agriculture implements a strategy to manage science and innovation in food production.

At the meeting, BioCubaFarma presented the development and implementation of advanced technologies for food production in industry, veterinary and agricultural sectors.

Eulogio Pimentel, vice president of BioCubaFarma, told Cuban television that since 2020 projects have been developed to increase the production of grains and veterinary vaccines, as well as tests to identify diseases in plants and animals.
