Sustainability and sovereignty of computerization process supported in Cuba

Havana, Sep 15.- Cuba advances in the process of computerization of society and today more citizens are accessing the so-called network of networks, official figures confirm.

This is confirmed by some statistics that add up to more than 3.7 million Internet users through the mobile network, in addition to almost 1,600 Wi-Fi areas in parks and public areas.

Also one million 700 thousand permanent accounts of the nauta platform, as well as better connectivity possibilities, for which there is an increasing presence of users on social networks and web platforms, says the newspaper Granma.

The publication affirms that the computerization policy of Cuban society seeks to create the infrastructures that allow the deployment of this technology throughout the national territory.

This also implies implementing the legal bases to ensure sustainability and technological sovereignty, and with it the development of digital content and services.

This is what the vice-head of the Ministry of Communications, Ernesto Rodríguez, told the newspaper, who explained that Cuba consulted legislation from several countries, including some from the region such as Uruguay, Argentina, Ecuador and Chile.

The official stressed that for this reason the island created its own regulatory order, which contributes to the economic and social development of the nation.

The approved regulations promote the use of computer programs that use open source platforms, preferably of national development, and recognize the validity of digital documents signed electronically with the use of national digital certificates, he said.

He concluded that national computer applications such as Transfermóvil, EnZona, DondeHay, Tuenvío, D'Ritmo, HabanaTrans, apklis, Picta, toDus and others, illustrate the capacity and strength of human resources to support the sustainability and sovereignty of the computerization process. (Text and photo: PL)
