Cuba may alter territorial division
Cuba is studying possible changes to its over three-decade territorial structure but there is dissent on whether it's a good idea.
Granma on-line said the current structure helped correct puzzling arbitrary territorial divisions that overrode geographic and socio-economic realities and impeded a homogenizing progress.
The divisions rose the provinces from six to 14 and shrunk municipalities to 169, including the then Isla de Pinos Special Municipality.
Among other, they have helped control state planning, organize economic, social and political processes and rationalize management and popular involvement in decision making.
Yet the time has come for revision, which involves territorial limits to settle some problems related to sense of belonging and economic activity.
