Havana, December 14 (RHC)-- The discussion of two bills and the analysis of vital issues such as the economy and the budget mark the opening this Monday of the debates that precede the ordinary session of the Cuban Parliament.

Virtually, the deputies will continue studying the legislative proposals on the organization and functioning of the provincial governments and the municipal administration councils, which will be presented for approval next  Thursday, December 17, during the sixth ordinary period of the IX legislature.

The day includes an exchange on the opinions, suggestions, and doubts lawmakers and the general public expressed on December 5, through the channels established for their participation in constructing the legal norm.

The objective is to achieve the greatest possible consensus, said José Luis Toledo, president of the Constitutional and Legal Affairs Committee of the Parliament, who pointed out that these two projects seal the Cuban State's institutional organization based on the provisions of the new Constitution.

The deputies of the Committee on Economic Affairs will also meet with representatives of the Ministries of Economy and Planning,  and Finance and Prices, for the presentation of the general objectives of the Plan of the Economy and the bill of the State Budget for 2021.

Both topics are on the parliamentary schedule, so they will serve as preparation to address these complex issues amid the international economic crisis, the impact of the U.S. blockade's intensification, and as the country prepares to carry out, next year, the so-called task of regulation.

2021 opens with the challenge of implementing the monetary reform that will establish a single currency in circulation and unifying exchange rates while carrying out wage and price reforms and trying to control inflation and the devaluation that these processes can generate.
