As part of the government visit to the province of Holguín led by Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, Roberto Morales Ojeda, vice president of the Councils of State and Ministers, visited the University of this eastern territory.
At the Celia Sánchez Manduley university branch, the member of the Political Bureau, accompanied by several members of the Council of Ministers, exchanged with the Board of Directors at the Center of Higher Studies.
He knew that more than 54 thousand students have graduated in this academic institution, after 50 years of creation, the number of professors with scientific status exceeds 80 percent and has a presence in all municipalities of Holguín.
Morales Ojeda highlighted the implementation there of the link Company-University-Society.
"We must ensure that not only the University exercises a management role, it must also come from companies (there are 104 in the province) and institutions here," he explained.
"We believe that this place of knowledge can guarantee more science, for the value of its faculty and students. I ask you not to stop and go for more, "he added.
He insisted on the importance of training a human capital with quality, since the economic and social results of the territory are based, to a great extent, on the graduates of this university.
"Without the human capital trained by Cuban Revolution, it would have been difficult to face so many aggressions from Imperialism or the Blockade," he stressed.
The vice president, accompanied by Maritza Salas Ge, member of the Provincial Party Bureau, and Manuel Hernández Aguilera, vice president for the Administration Body of the Provincial Assembly of the People's Power, acknowledged the Holguín potential in import substitution and identification of exportable items, which increased by 16 lines during the previous government visit -which took place in August 2018-, to 33 today.
He also called for continuing the process of computerization and Electronic Government, and the implementation of a communicational policy "in understandable, fresh terms."
He highlighted the results of UH Undergraduate and Postgraduate Studies, as well as the perspectives of the Scientific-Technological Park of the UHO, for becoming a benchmark at national level.
He praised the recent establishment of a branch of the Academy of Sciences in the territory, constituted from the scientific-technical strengths of the territory.
"We have to see science and research as investments and not expenses," he concluded.
