Goodbye Avila, good luck Selso

No wonder Cuba’s sugar minister asked to be replaced, as Cuban media reported this week (AP story here). Granma gives him a nasty farewell that reports that the current sugar harvest is the worst since 1905, “abysmal,” and lays blame at the ministry’s actions and policies. Cuban Colada translates and summarizes here.

A new minister has been named, notwithstanding the rumor that the ministry would be dissolved and replaced by a state enterprise that would, among other things, bring foreign investors in as partners to modernize plant and boose production.
