Cuba is set to invest more than one billion pesos – a slightly larger figure than last year – in its energy and mining sectors, reported Deputy Minister of the sector, Rubén Cid.
Speaking to the press, the official from the Ministry of Energy and Mines noted that investments in 2015 amounted to around one billion pesos, representing 94.9% fulfillment of the scheduled plan. He described 2015 as a good year for activities in the sector, which saw key industries achieve high levels of production.
He noted that the only sectors in which targets failed to be met were oil refining, and gold and salt extraction.
The deputy minister noted greater stability in the supply of imported resources for daily operations, the fulfillment of scheduled maintenance works and investments in various industries, as the keys to last year’s success.
