After the discussion on each group of guidelines, Murillo concentrated on proposals made by deputies, followed by more speeches from parliamentarians, which made it possible to cover every issue in a fruitful manner.

Today, the debate continues on Chapters 6 through 12, which cover social policy; agricultural policy; industrial and energy policy; tourism policy; transport policy; construction, housing and water policy; and trade policy.

At the end of Thursday’s session, National Assembly President Ricardo Alarcón showed deputies and invited guests a piece of art with a message from Gerardo Hernández, also signed by Antonio, Fernando, Ramón y René. The appreciation of all those present was expressed in heartfelt applause for that gesture on the part of the five Cuban heroes for being a constant source of inspiration in defense of the Revolution and socialism.
