More than 14,332 records of the Land Tenure Registry in Matanzas have been digitized, a process that is a priority for the delegation of Agriculture, said Luis Alberto Bouza Alfonso, head of the provincial Department of Land and Tractor Control.
The western territory began 2019 with deficiencies in this activity, but to date these results have been reversed and digitalization reaches 80% of the planned files.
The greatest delay is concentrated in the municipality of Jagüey Grande, in the central-southern area of Matanzas, due to technological problems in the municipal delegation of agriculture. There, it was decided to digitize the files at the Victoria de Girón Agribusiness Company to conclude the year in better conditions, Bouza Alfonso added.
Currently 85% of the Land Tenure Registry is already digitized in Cuba, as part of the computerization process carried out by the agriculture system, according to statements Eddy Soca Baldoquín, Director of Land and Land Control of the Ministry of Agriculture (Minag).
The files already processed will integrate a database that will be hosted on the servers of the Telecommunications Company of Cuba, ETECSA, to access it through an application.
The digitization of the Land Registry will contribute to the control, flow of communication and access to information and will affect the economy.
