The Cuban government announced that it will soon make "inevitable" reforms in the country to tackle the international economic crisis, local press said on Monday.
 
"Nowadays many intense discussions are being conducted in the ruling system" to make modifications in the productive sector, said an article published Monday by the official daily Granma.

The Communist Party of Cuba said that the crisis will not be inextricable if the businesses conduct a deep revision of their inventories, together with the mobilization of the citizens.

"It is an issue of principles not to make income fall short of expenditure," said Granma's Director Lazaro Barredo, adding that "the lack of demand and discipline" must be overcome.

Barredo said that one of the most important issues in current situation is "to face the mentality of expenditure that many companies have in the country and most of the time they do not ask how much things cost."

Barredo also said that Cuba has adopted measures to avoid the deterioration of fundamental social programs, such as education and health, to keep the employment rate and to guarantee each citizen has equal calories, proteins and fats.
