Cuban Biotechnology Thriving
Cuban biotechnological products increasingly have an economic and social impact and work should continue in a scientific-technical service as a means to increase exports and substitute imports, Quevedo said.

However, Quevedo pointed out that the most important is the social impact represented by the development of biotechnology in this country.

The science director of CITMA, Liliam Alvarez expressed that the main challenge in 2009 is to enable science and technology as major contributors to the economic and social development of the country.

Science and technology must go hand in hand to recover food production, energy and health development, as well as computerization of the Cuban society, the expert explained.

Every year a province is selected as seat of the national event of the Cuban Day of Science due to their results. This time the event will be held on January 15, in Ciego de Avila, in the center of the country.

National recognition will be given to the special municipality of the Isle of Youth for its efforts in recovery of the hurricanes Gustav and Ike that hit it in 2008.
