AS an expression of the revolutionary democracy that characterizes our socialist workers’ state, a broad process of discussion and analysis of the Conceptualization of the Cuban Economic and Social Model of Socialist Development and of the Foundations of the National Social and Economic Development Plan through 2030: Vision of the Nation, Axes, and Strategic Sectors, has been undertaken in our society. In turn, the results of this consultation were considered in the update of the Economic and Social Policy Guidelines of the Party and the Revolution for the period 2016-2021.

Throughout this process, deputies have participated in several meetings, where we have had the opportunity to present considerations and recommendations.

During the analyzes carried out, a significant number of proposals were formulated that enriched the documents under consultation, which preserved their essential content.

The consensus reached is indispensable, because these documents, endorsed by the 7th Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba, constitute the basis for advancing toward the full realization of an independent, sovereign, socialist, democratic, prosperous and sustainable nation.

The Foundations of the National Social and Economic Development Plan through 2030 will permit the elaboration of this plan, which will be presented in due time for the approval of this Assembly.

By the powers vested in our National Assembly of People’s Power we propose to you, deputies, the supreme body of state power:

To support the Conceptualization of the Cuban Economic and Social Model of Socialist Development and new modifications to the Economic and Social Policy Guidelines of the Party and the Revolution for the period 2016-2021, approved in the Third Central Committee Plenum of the Communist Party of Cuba.

To mandate that these documents constitute the guiding foundations of the work of all state and government entities and officials, our workers and the people in general.

Havana, June 1, 2017.

Year 59 of the Revolution
