Delegates to the Sixth Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) approved on Sunday the Central Report to the meeting presented on Saturday by President and PCC’s Second Secretary Raul Castro during the opening session of the event.

Later on the day, they began the analysis of the Draft Guidelines for the Economic and Social Policy of the Party and the Revolution, and dedicated their work in commissions to make recommendations of possible solutions to the diverse problems affecting the social and economic life of the nation.

Social policies, energy, housing, water resources, reparation and maintenance of electrical appliances, and the country’s capacity to produce salt, among others, were some of the topics analyzed in one of the commissions, according to a report by Cuban television.

Another working group discussed the strategy for tourism. In this respect, they emphasized the need to promote initiatives by local industries at the municipal level to favor the development of this sector.

In another commission, while analyzing the national monetary policy, delegates made recommendations to control the collection of taxes and to increase the people’s culture on taxes and the importance of this social duty.

The improvement of education and health services, two of the most important achievements of the Revolution, was the focus of attention of the delegates in another commission.

On Monday, the 997 delegates participating in the Congress are scheduled to work in a plenary session to vote on the recommendations made by the commissions on Sunday.
