Raul Castro rejects privatization, 'shock therapy' for Cuba

President Raul Castro giving a speech during the opening of VII Congress of Cuban Communist Party (PCC) at Convention Palace in Havana, on April 16, 2016Cuban President Raul Castro rejected rapid privatization and vowed never to pursue “shock therapy,” setting the tone for a Communist Party congress reviewing progress in revamping the island’s moribund Soviet-style economy. “Cuba will never permit the application of so-called shock therapies, which are frequently applied to the detriment of society’s most humble classes,” he said in a lengthy speech opening the congress, which takes place every five years and will stretch on for several days. The main political event in a one-party system that brooks no dissent, the congress comes less than a month after US President Barack Obama’s historic visit and with Havana normalizing ties with the United States, its longtime Cold War foe.
