Cuban government announces cabinet reshuffle



The Council of State agreed to release Jose Ramon Fernandez Alvarez from his responsibility as vice president of the Council of Ministers, a post he occupied for many years.

According to the official note, given his experience and positive results in the course of his duties — particularly his contribution to the development of education in the country — Fernandez has been appointed advisor to the president of the Council of State and Ministers, Raul Castro.

In addition, the Council of State also agreed to release Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez from his responsibility as higher education minister and to promote him to the post of vice president of the Council of Ministers.

As a result of this promotion, the current first deputy minister of higher education, Rodolfo Alarcon Ortiz, will be the new higher education minister.

In another change, Elba Rosa Perez Montoya — who had been the head of the Cuban Communist Party Central Committee’s Department of Science since
2006 — has been appointed as the new Minister of Science, Technology and the Environment; thus relieving Jose M. Miyar Barrueco.

The note points out that, taking into account his positive results and experience, Miyar Barrueco will head a business enterprise — Higher Organization of Business Management – that will soon be created, under the Council of Ministers, for the research, development, production and marketing of medicines, a field he has led since the creation of the Havana-based Scientific Center.
