Diaz Velazquez added that they assessed the products that should be maintained in the CUC network, economic line and basic need and some that respond to policies and social programs systematically verified.
These will be available in the CUC network of stores as far as possible, and incorporate water pumps, semi-automatic washing machines, mixers, blenders, fans and automobile accesories that respond to road safety.
This is a gradual and staggered process, where hoarding and price speculation must be avoided, so prices will be permanently reviewed and communication channels have also been established to receive complaints and respond to doubts and concerns, the minister stressed.
