Cuban president calls for striving to solve electricity problem

Cuban President Miguel Mario Diaz-Canel Bermudez recently called for making efforts to solve the serious electricity problem of the country.

Outside forces’ blockade has caused difficulties in purchasing equipment parts and fuel needed for power stations, he noted, and added that officials and technicians of thermal power stations, however, were struggling for the recovery of generation capacity by displaying unbounded devotion and creativity.

He said that the primary task in solving the serious electricity problem of the country is to ensure the stability of the national electric power system.

He stressed the need to solve the problem as soon as possible by repairing and improving power stations of large output and increasing investment.
