Yesterday afternoon, July 7, the 2nd plenum of the current Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba met, with Army General Raúl Castro Ruz presiding, to discuss the performance of the economy.

Presented were details of reports on the execution of the economic plan during the first six months of the year, and the close-out of last year's state budget, both recently discussed by the Council of Ministers.

Central Committee members emphasized the need to eliminate unnecessary expenses, promote more conservation, and careful control of resources.

Discussion on these economic issues will continue at the National Assembly during its plenary session today, July 8.
