The maintenance and investment plan for the sugar sector is going as planned in order to ensure that upcoming difficulties will be handled appropriately and the quality of the harvest will be preserved. These guarantees are necessary to start the milling season according to schedule.

Ricardo Sánchez Calero, Provincial Director of the company Azcuba, stated that the primary goal is to resolve technical difficulties ahead of time, which caused damages to the previous sugar harvest during the milling stage, and resulted in the area failing to meet obligations.
