Isla de la Juventud is currently making a first approach to the subordination status of its companies for the purposes of Local Development, municipal autonomy and the Ordering Task.
The existence in this special municipality of a significant number of nationally subordinate companies limits both decision-making and the adequate prospective design of local development, based on the identification and use of endogenous potential and resources.
This is the Cuban municipality with the largest number of these organizations, José Luis Mangana Peralta, coordinator of Programs and Objectives of the Municipal Administration Council, told the Cuban News Agency.
He stressed that thinking as a nation helps them in the analysis, so the starting point for the decision was to be clear about what is produced and where it is consumed, if it is related to the national balance, its status is maintained, or if it is a company specialized company that sells its services, otherwise it passes or retains its municipal subordination.
The Policy for Territorial Development, anchored in the country's strategy, advocates the role of municipalities, as a fundamental instance, where autonomy is necessary, based on a solid sustainable economic-productive base, which is achieved with the use of their potentialities and helped reduce the main disproportions between them.
In this sense, it is foreseen -in this first approximation- that from the agricultural system, some basic business units will become MSMEs, others -such as tobacco- will become a company of national subordination and some like Flora y Fauna will become a company municipal with a financial structure that strengthens its autonomy in decisions and projects, exemplified for a better understanding.
He added that entities such as Pesca Isla, Mármol and Materiales de la Construcción would maintain their vertical subordination, the first due to the significant contributions to the export of seafood products and the last given the exclusivity of their deposits (marble rocks and kaolin), raw materials of interest for the country.
The Food Production Company, which was of national subordination, derives in two local entities: Láctea and Cárnica, both with different industrial processes, different technological disciplines, reconversion and investment, that will allow decisions to be brought closer to the place where problems are created, he said.
The Ordering Task will make it possible to make a leap in the qualitative and quantitative order in economic relations, between companies, to which non-state forms are added as important economic actors, in order to promote import substitution, stimulate exports, enhance local development as an endogenous process and strengthening municipal autonomy.
