Guantanamo, Cuba.- Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Thursday visited places of social, historic and cultural interest in Guantanamo, as part of his work visit to that eastern territory.

Diaz-Canel and local authorities visited the Agostinho Neto Hospital, where they learned about the work being done by that health institution and the mother-child program.

There, the president stressed the importance of monitoring pregnant women throughout their pregnancy and childbirth, local TV reported.

The president also met with residents outside the institution and urged local authorities to respond to their concerns. The head of State also attended the reopening of the provincial museum of Guantanamo, an institution that underwent restoration works for 11 months.

After visiting the museum, Diaz-Canel wrote his impressions in the visitors’ book and highlighted the value, for the new generations, of the facility, which holds important historic documents on the province.

On Wednesday, the Cuban president began a government visit to Guantanamo, including Baracoa and sites of economic and social interest.

He has visited several Cuban provinces since he took office in April 2018, including Pinar del Rio, Matanzas, Cienfuegos, Ciego de Avila and Santiago de Cuba.
