According to the official source, “Apart from news, commentaries, points of view and other daily themes, both political and economic, in the areas of culture, science and technology, sports, the contents of the printed publications can also be found, most of which offer the reader immense information on the most varied themes in Cuban life, apart from a complete tourist guide of Havana, the CDs produced by the Multimedia Division of the Agency and the books under its editorial stamp”.
