Youth a Majority in Lands Handed Over

HAVANA TIMES, Aug. 20 — More than 50 per cent of the persons who have received lands in usufruct, according to Law 259 of 2008, are young, Pedro Olivera, director of the National Land Control Center, said. According to the source, out of the 1,007,112 hectares handed over until now, only 46 per cent are producing due to a “lack of resources and work means and the drought that has hit the country,” reported IPS.
