(Original title is Cuban VP Urges Workers to Fulfill Their Duties)

Cuban News Agency

Cuban First Vice President Jose Ramon Machado Ventura urged workers to fulfill their duties during a tour around the municipality of Santiago de Cuba on Sunday.

“If everyone does his duty, no one will defeat us,” said Machado Ventura, who is also a member of the Politburo of the Cuban Communist Party (PCC).

According to Granma news daily, the Cuban VP, accompanied by Misael Enamorado Dager, First Secretary of the PCC in the province of Santiago de Cuba, visited production centers and farms, where he described as very positive an ongoing strategy to replace the importation of vegetables for the tourist sector of the territory.

During his tour, Machado Ventura also learned about the work being done to improve the quality of potable water and its supply to the people in Santiago de Cuba.

He also checked on the construction of the fourth Computers Palace of the country and spoke with workers who are refurbishing several gastronomic centers in Santiago.

Also on Sunday, Machado Ventura presided over the PCC Assembly in the municipality of Santiago de Cuba.

“To change everything that needs to be changed means to transform things in order to achieve better results after we have identified and solved the existing problems,” he said.

The VP added that the PCC has new tasks ahead and that modifications will continue to take place always respecting the principles of the Revolution and Socialism.

    “Cuban First Vice President Jose Ramon Machado Ventura urged workers to fulfill their duties during a tour…”

    means “work harder”

    and

    “To change everything that needs to be changed means to transform things in order to achieve better results after we have identified and solved the existing problems”

    means “Don’t bother the government with your problems. We have our own problems.”

    Ahh, sounds like the old Fidel. I’m starting to miss that good old “motivational” propaganda.

    Gee, I wonder why production is so terrible in Cuba?

    I think Machado’s intent was to go to Santiago de Cuba and motivate the workers like Fidel might have been able to many years ago but now it just sounds like he is telling everyone to shut up and get to work.

    Just not the same coming from someone else.

    A sign of trouble?
