Santa Clara.— During the encounter, it was acknowledged that since the first visit 9 months ago, there has been progress in several sectors, while in others there are still some issues that demand great attention like the water distribution network in the territory.
Diaz Canel stressed that there is a lot to be done in the province, and urged authorities to work "to overcome the inertia of those who feel tired, instilling enthusiasm and optimism in those who are committed, and understanding that the beauty of difficult moments relies in the size of the challenges." He also encouraged his audience to make of the good and exceptional experiences the rule of day.
