Even though less than 3% of Cuba’s 11-million+ citizens are able to actually access the internet, that does not stop the Castro dictatorship from proudly touting that its farcical reforms are now being made available on a new website. Makes you wonder just who the Cuban regime is trying to “inform.”
On the other hand, it makes perfect sense that access to information on these “reforms” is as farcical as the reforms themselves.
Official Website to keep track of reforms
CUBA STANDARD — The Cuban government approved the creation of a Website that publishes political outlines, laws and regulations of its economic reforms, Vice President Marino Murillo announced at a conference of accountants and economists in Havana, according to Prensa Latina.
The economic reform czar said this is the first time this kind of information will be available at one site. All laws and regulations are published in the Gaceta Oficial, which is available online. However, the Gaceta Website does not allow to systematically search for items related to the ongoing economic reforms.
“What we will do now is prepare a site where each policy and all regulations can be found, in order to make it easier to understand,” Murillo said, according to Prensa Latina.
The economic reform process under Raúl Castro officially began with the “Outline of Economic and Social Policy,” which was approved by the Communist Party in April 2011.
