The Struggle for Socialism in Cuba
Presented in English Our Presenters

Speakers Esteban Morales and Katia De Llano will be speaking today about
Cuba's ongoing process of economic reform. Mr. Morales is professor
emeritus of political economy at the University of Havana as well as the
former director of the Center for the Study of the United States and
Hemispheric Affairs. Ms. De Llano is professor emeritus of economics at
the University of Havana as well as a former economic advisor to the Cuban
National Assembly. Summary

The recently completed the 6th Congress of the Cuban Communist Party
approved a set of economic reform measures that will transform the Cuban
economy in the coming years, due in large part to the world economic
crisis of the past three years. The Congress also instituted a process of
generational transition in the leadership of the Party. Professors Morales
and De Llano, two respected academic figures and political activists, will
be coming to analyze the importance of these developments within the
context of Cuba and its 50-year history after the Cuban Revolution.

We'll have muffins and coffee for you.
