Havana: Cuba today needs greater innovation and application of science to solve accumulated problems in its companies and advance economic performance, the president Miguel Díaz-Canel highlighted in exchange with the Government Boards, Prensa Latina publishes.

The Island has a contradiction that can be resolved, the president said: an underdeveloped country with a high human development index, and yet it does not appear in the world innovation ranking, where 143 states are registered.

Díaz-Canel insisted that the Caribbean nation has what is necessary to enhance the interconnections between the knowledge, production and services sectors, and government activity; but it is necessary that those who direct the companies and the Government Boards stimulate these processes.

In this sense, he exhorted the business sector to identify obstacles and eliminate them, apply shelved investigations to solve accumulated problems and seek motivations to encourage economic growth.

In Cuba, the knowledge system and the universities lead innovation, followed by the research centers; while the companies have very low representation, with the exception of the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry group, BioCubaFarma.

Faced with this reality, the president called to banish the inertia that persists despite the 43 measures approved to strengthen the state company.

The business sector needs proactive thinking, which implements improvement actions to advance economic and social development in a more sustainable, intense and rapid way, the president said.
