HAVANA.- The process of modernizing the newspaper presses began recently in Villa Clara, according to information published by Granma. The aim is to provide all printing presses in the country with a technology capable of printing periodical publications in four-color format, and to meet the requirements in terms of capacity and speed.

This is a comprehensive program, which is expected to last more than a year and will cover the rest of the entities involved in the editing, production and distribution of the press in the country.

This first stage is the most complex, given that the press company of Havana assumed the production of the national and provincial newspapers corresponding to the central region.

This situation, together with the years of operation of the existing machinery and the lack of spare parts, has generated logical delays in the distribution of the press in the west and center of the country.
