He highlighted the program currently implemented in Cuba for lodging increase, and cited the investments in the northern cays, Holguín; and in the south coast (Cienfuegos, Trinidad and Santiago de Cuba).

He recalled that around 4 million 35 thousand foreign visitors visited Cuba last year and achieved records in revenues and profits thanks to the government, tourist institutions, non-state sector and the population itself.
