Ramón Machado Ventura, Second Secretary of the Cuban Communist Party, advocated for more responsibility as the most important political organization in Cuba seeks to strengthen its work and role in the new context of changes in the island.
In the opening speech Machado Ventura stated that getting rid of outdated notions “is not a temporary task, but something that has to be an essential and permanent element of the militant behavior as guarantee that the Party will always be ready to face the challenges of each historic moment” and added that it was a necessity to move forward in the implementation of all the agreements of the Sixth Congress of the PCC, which took place in April last year.
The First Conference of the PCC dedicated its first of two sessions to Cuban National Hero José Martí, whose 159 birthday is celebrated today. Delegates to the gathering worked in four commissions which discussed working methods of the Party, its ideological work, the policy of cadres and the PCC’s relations with the Young Communist League and grass roots organizations.
