This was clearly shown by the Deputy Prime Minister of Cuba, Ines Maria Chapman Waugh, when she called these three important branches to solve Holguín's problems as a whole, and always under the viewpoint of science and technological innovation.
At the working meeting, attended by Ernesto Santiesteban Velazquez - first secretary of the Cuban Communist Party in the province -, and governor, Julio Cesar Estupiñan Rodriguez, the heads of each of these branches updated the presidency and the audience on the progress of local cardinal projects, such as the Hydraulic Development Program, the Trea Vida (Task Life) as well as the work of the scientific poles, and the territorial ordering and confrontation of urban illegalities.
The Provincial Delegation of Hydraulic Resources highlighted the results of 2020 and its forecasts up to 2030, with emphasis on water supply to the population, the reduction of the cleaning cycles of septic tanks and their gradual reduction, given that Holguin has a high national incidence, which implies more expenditure of resources and environmental pollution.
For this reason, Chapman Waugh's insistence on the joint work between these three entities, even oriented that in the working visits to the municipalities they should be integrated in order to seek joint solutions from their respective directions.
Likewise, the Delegation of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment of Holguin dealt with its management during 2020, especially the state plan Tarea Vida, in view of the challenge of climate change and its implications on life and socio-economic development.
And if these two entities contribute to the future of the province, as it was demonstrated, the Provincial Directorate of Physical Planning and its municipal subordinations must deepen on the duty of advising governments, insisted Chapman Waugh.
It is not conceivable that illegalities still continue on, this is not a whim by the Cuban state, said the Deputy Prime Minister, because in addition to public discipline, it is a necessity for survival, since many illegal settlements or homes built without authorization hinder economic and social development, since they are located in project or investment sites, or in areas that affect the ecosystem.
Furthermore, they are built precariously and lead to overcrowding, thus influencing on the spread of diseases, such as the current Covid-19 pandemic.
For this reason, the Deputy Prime Minister was interested on the level of responses without solutions to procedures of the population from Physical Planning, whose slow pace can lead to illegalities, and insisted on not only combating illegalities but also accelerating the processes of delivery of plots for the construction of houses by own effort, the completion of the cadastre and the computerization of all services to expedite procedures and to move forward more quickly.
For his part, Antonio Rodriguez, president of the National Institute of Hydraulic Resources, reported that despite the known material limitations, the important construction of the Levisa dam continues, along with the hydraulic investments associated with the Ramon de Antilla, and other locations in the province.
Likewise, for the benefit of agriculture, industry and of course social consumption.
And it is that everything that Holguin does and can do, in the matter of hydraulic resources; science, technology and environment and physical planning, must be qualified by the joint work, thinking as a country, in for the development of the province, taking advantage of its scientific-technical potential and innovation, for the solution of todays and future territorial problems.
