China donates more than 500 tractors to boost Cuban agriculture
The delivery of 587 tractors to Cuba by Chinese YTO Group, a leading manufacturer of agricultural machinery, is a courageous respite for the domestic food production, based mainly on the existing technological obsolescence in that key sector.
This acquisition will support priority activities, including production of grain, sugar and milk. As part of the agreement between the Chinese company and the Cuban TECNOIMPORT, his institution validated the supply of tractors of various powers, which are tested by experts from both countries, while local workers are trained in the use of this machinery.
The most powerful tractors (160 horsepower) will be allocated to the sugar harvest; while the lighter ones (between 65 and 90 horsepower), will be used in lower agricultural activities and health labors.
