The role of the countrys reserve foodstuffs, building materials, fuel, medicines and other supplies in the recovery from natural disasters like hurricanes or drought, was praised Wednesday by the Parliamentary Defense Committee meeting in Havana.

Stockpiling supplies for swiftly reestablishing normal conditions after disaster situations also provides preparedness for international solidarity missions and strengthens the nation's defense capacity.

Brigadier General Moises Sio Wong, president of the National Institute of State Reserves, gave the legislators a detailed progress report on the recovery of storage capacity with the installation of refrigerated silos.

Sio Wong also explained the need to properly rotate the nations foodstuff reserves and the role that state inspection has to play in the detection of problems in the condition of the stored goods.
